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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


At 60,000 I started hearing a grinding sound from my front driver's side wheel. I took it in for repair and was told I needed a new driver's side wheel bearing assembly. I was also told that the passenger side was loose and would have to be replaced. I had the one repaired, and two months later the second failed and needed replacement. Add that to the other problems with this piece of crap and it irritates the hell out of me.

I took the vehicle to sears where i had new tires installed and they found out it was the right front bearing was shot. They replaced it and ended up busting the star ring on the rear of the back plate, another pain the ass.
