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.

Consumer's wife was driving near home and lost power steering and power brakes. She was able to stop the vehicle by standing on the brakes. The dealership was called and they pick up the vehicle. They replaced the serpentine belt and pulley. A year later while driving on the interstate the serpentine belt fell off again in the middle of heavy traffic. The consumer had to pull to the side of road. The dealer was called and they determined that the serpentine belt and pulley had broken again. It was repaired. Called the manufacturer to report the problem. The manufacturer said that there was nothing they could do about it. No more problems as of yet.

Van felt like it was going to stall when at a stop light or stop sign or if idling. Also battery died twice within first year. High pitched squealing developed about 6 months after purchase. The van vibrates, especially steering wheel once speed exceeds 50 mph. The dealership replaced the battery and also the alternater due to a defective mechanism. The squealing has stopped. Adjustments were also made to reduce the rough ride of the vehicle. The vibrating still occurs and it is not smooth when on the highway going at speeds in excess of 50 mph.
