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.

Have had vehicle several times to dealer ship since we bought used vehicle for sway bars coming loose this seems to be a issue that they just cant get resolved. The last time I was driving vehicle out of no where it started making the thumping noise it startled me I was pulling over to check my steering I was almost rear ended pulling off highway. Reading some internet sites this seems to be a problem with this vehicle.
