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 was driving home from work Friday afternoon June 28th and shortly after I turned onto a small road to go home I heard a very loud noise coming from the rear of my vehicle. I was extremely scared to drive it the rest of the way home, but managed to make it home very slowly. The next day I took it to my local dealership and they had no clue what would be making this loud rattling/banging noise in the rear of my SUV. When they lifted my vehicle here the evap canister bracket rusted and snapped off, which made the evap canister itself bounce off of the drive shaft making the noise that came from the rear of my vehicle. They showed me the underside of my vehicle and where all this was taking place, but while looking at the underside it made me concerned about all of the other rust areas underneath my car. Thinking about it now, my four wheel drive has disengaged this past winter and it makes me think if it possibly has rusted apart, I will get the mechanics to inspect that further for me, I do need to get that fixed before this coming winter arrives. I know my car is a 2006, but should pieces of my vehicle be rusting off already" should I be concerned about the rest of the rust damage underneath my car"

While turning into my carport, my engine stalled. Right before I turned, I took my foot off the accelerator and the car hesitated and lurched forward. This could be a potentially dangerous problem if my car stalls on the road and some other driver rear ends me.
