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.

When starting up from a stop and turning left or right I hear a grinding noise. Sounds as if it is in the front end but hard to tell. More pronounced when turning left. Have had the front end completely repaired. Bearings packed. Brakes checked. Rear end serviced.

Ball joints show very little wear. Drive shaft is ok. The noise sounds like if you turned the steering wheel hard as you could to the side and gave it the gas and the tires were pushing across the pavement. Hope that helps. Oh yes did front end alignment.
