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 recently bought a 2004 Honda Civic LX in California. The night I drove home and pulled over, I heard a noise coming from the front of the car. I opened the hood and realized the noise has been coming from the belts. I took my car back to the dealer where I bought the car and they turned me away and said the parts are probably too new and they need some time to 'break in'. the mileage on my car just over 1000 miles and I am very concerned of that noise if it will cause any major consequences. Please advise.
