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.

Vehicle starting problems. Took it to dealer a few times and it still does it from time to time. An advisory was issues, but still did not fix the problem. Rear passenger bearing went bad around 9000 miles. Front brakes were already worn out at 17000. They replaced them, and still went out around 21000. Had to use other company pads/rotors to go by. Rear brake shoes were cracked, not used, cracked. They said is normal. Many suspension noises. They said all was okay. I changed the suspension from my own money since they were no help and still same noises. Now they blame the E after market suspension on the problems. Other users and people I have talked to complained about same or similiar issuse.
