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.

This is the second exhaust manifold that has cracked on my car. The first went out around 45K miles and was fixed under warranty. The first time it was a small crack and produced a ticking noise. This time it's a bit larger and makes the noise of a rumble. It makes the engine sound powerful and my mechanic said it's so small I don't have to worry about damaging the engine (it also doesn't get cold here). So I put up with the muscular sounding engine, but when I have clients in my car, I don't think it's a good thing.

Ticking noise was the exhaust leaking from the exhaust manifold. The dealer replaced under warranty. These things are cast iron and shouldn't crack at this low mileage.
