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.

It sounds like you need a new axle. We bought one and brought it to a garage, the mechanic who is very trust able told us it was not the axle. It is the transmission slapping or something like that. I asked my brother who also works on cars and he said it sounds like something is binding. When you shift gears (from park to drive, or drive to reverse, or whatever) it makes a click, click, click noise. I don't know how much longer it will last, and either do they.

The mechanic said he has seen it before in the caravans, and it could go in a month or last a while. But obviously it isn't just mine!!
