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.

Car ran well, easy on gas,engine ran good, 2.4 litre,,just sold it with 248,000 km, approx 154,000 miles but every year I had to spend about $1000.00 (US) on front end a year after it went off warranty. Ball-joints, bushings, you name it, I changed it.The only thing I didn't have to change over the years was the steering wheel. I went back to GM.

I had the car checked out for clanking noises from the front of the car when going over bumps. I thought this was probably the brakes. They of course couldn't recreate the clanking noises I was experiencing, but they said that there was a lot of play in the ball joints and that that was probably part of the sounds I was hearing. The parts were ~$100 at O'Reilly and labor was $353 for two ball joints. They also said control arm bushings were popped out. I had them replaced as well, but listed them under a separate complaint.

Funny, after I had these things fixed, there is still a lot of clanking over bumps. The mechanic then said he thought it was the brakes, which is what I said in the first place.
