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.

We get a wind noise when driving into the wind and other misc times. Noise sounds like an alarm clock without the pauses in tone. It sounds to be eminating from front of vehicle, windsheild, or the doors. The dealer thinks its the door seals. Waiting to see. Been to the shop 5 times for this problem now! 1st time they didn't know what it was, never heard of this problem, couldn't duplicate, second time they knew exactly what it was, ordered door seals. 3rd time they got the wrong door seals, forth time, they got one wrong door seal again! fift time the have had it for one week three days to this date! also revs up to high during start up. Dealer stated that the transmission was at fault"??? that it had to catch in gear????? this is a manual! what is he talking about!!!!?? also has bent rims! we have baby-ed that car! only 2400 miles and bent rims! this car is a lemon!! what do you think" bear@tbhod.tk.
