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.

While driving 55 mph steering wheel vibrated. This caused the vehicle to wander from side to side. Consumer drove vehicle to the dealer for analysis, and mechanic noticed that both frontal tires needed to be replaced, and a wheel alignment was necessary.

Creaking/popping noise when turning into parking area, driveway, backing in/out, occurs at low speeds - took to dealer - they heard noise, however, could not find a solution to correct the problem - with our description, an independent ase mechanic said could be broken bushing, metal to metal. He also said even if you sprayed with silicone, it would not do any good.
