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.

I have replaced everything on my front end trying to get rid of noises, like metal hitting metal and nothing has worked. I have replaced my shocks several times and the ride is still rough. I feel that the money I have spent should be reimbursed. The car's suspension has been horrible. I have spoke with the dealer and had him repair several parts and was told by the dealer, these cars have the same suspension problems. Once they get so many miles on them they all tend to make noises no one can find. At what point does the manufacturer or the government step in an take care of all these problems, there should have been a recall issued on them at this point.

At all speeds the front end would rattle, took to authorized dealer they replaced shocks, stabilizer etc. This did not fix the problem. I contacted the same dealer and they explained that they have had a lot of trouble with the 300 front ends and to bring it back and they will re evaluate the problem. I feel that the front clip is loose.
