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 been experiencing a front creaking noise on my vehicle when I'm turning at low speeds. I've add the van in twice for the repair and was covered under the warranty. My van needs to now go in again for the third time and it's not under warranty. There is a service bulletin out for this, 11-038

A loose rattling sound began to get much more pronounced and louder coming from the rear passenger area. I determined it wasn't a loose/unlatched door, took the car to the dealer. Upon inspection they found that the rear shock absorber had lost all of its fluid, reducing its operation to near 0%. if this had occurred on a long trip (approx 200-400 miles, the amount covered in about a week) this lack of wheel control could have been disastrous. This loud rattling masked another similar problem with the drivers side front strut; this is an even greater safety issue concerning controlling the car. Both strut and shock were replaced by the dealer. A less perceptive or attentive driver might have missed these telltale indicators of some part failure, which could lead to loss of control of the vehicle..

Low battery light keeps coming on effects presets, and interior light, was looked at 4 time with no change. Was told not to make short trips what mother doesn't take short trip give me a break. Noise coming from front end, strut assemblies replace on both sides still makes noise going back in to be looked at again. I don't even have 3000 miles on it yet has been in shop more than any car I have owned. I think it is a lemon !!!
