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.

The vehicle is loud on the inside even with the windows rolled up. The dealer says this is normal. While on extended trips there is a ringing sound heard in the ears at the end of the trip. Consumer feels this loud noise may damage the hearing and that it is too loud to hear outside traffic.
