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.

Just recently I have noticed a soft growling noise from the engine or somewhere, it only happens when I accelerate and when I take my foot off the pedal the noise stops also recently I noticed a squeeling noise coming from the engine this only happens in low gear like when I am taking off in first and second gear it's not very loud but it is there , it sounds like something is slipping, [ I have only heard these two noises in the last couple of weeks ] my three years warrenty runs out at the end of June this year , I hope that neons don't fall to bits at the end of 3 years.
