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.

Just like the other complaint. It sounds like I'm driving in an airplane it gets so loud that you get a headache. Can't talk on the phone or talk to anyone else in the van.

My most recent problem with this pile is this deafening sound coming from the front end. It reminds me of flying on a large airplane, in coach, right behind the wings/engines! Driving to/from work actually gives me a headache. Im sure you get the picture. It started as a low pitched hum about a month ago. Now I cant even hear my children talk to me. I unfortunatly have not mustered the nerve to bring it into the dealership, again... for the fourth time. Im afraid I will actually drive it up their a**! Thank you for letting me vent.
