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.

I have not addressed this issue as yet. Noise occurs when turning either direction in parking lots, particularly if changing from a forward direction to reverse as in exiting a parked position. I think at this time, it is either CV joints (hard to believe with this low mileage) or steering linkage. Need to lift front end to free suspension and steering linkage to check for "play" in components. I am covered by extended warranty. Vehicle has only highway miles, no off-road and has carried only light bed loads infrequently. Problem is worsening. Does not affect road handling. No abnormal tire wear noted.
