Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Knocking on front end and faulty rear end. Parts were replaced twice on the front and rear end of the vehicle. The radio was replaced, the power steering was noisy, the mirror vibrated when traveling at a high speed. The exhaust system was emitting white smoke. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for repairs over 15 times

Mirrors shake so badly that no image can be identified above 50 mph. Very dangerous on interstates. Dealer technician says "this is the single most frequent complaint about these vans since introduction in 1996. Replacement often fails to improve condition. This is a design failure." If true this should be the basis for a recall and re-design.
