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.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission

Popping noise heard in steering since three weeks of purchase. Dealer originally advised it was normal on new vehicles and needed to "work out the kinks." Taken in for repairs. First repair attempt, dealer found excessive play in lower ball joints and replaced both. Picked U vehicle and immediately heard popping noise again. Dealer then performed second repair attempt by finding center cross member and ride height bushings in need of lubing. Popping noise recurred within month of picking up vehicle after second repair attempt. Service mgr took test drive and heard popping noise. Now states he cannot recreate and knows something is wrong but not sure what.
