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.

Vehicle has many problems from start, car shimmy's with no available fix, rear brakes make noise, bumper paint is very cheap, steering wheel makes rubbing noise when turned, rear cup-holder doesn't stay shut. Takes too long to start vehicle.

Whenever vehicle slows down for a stop, it would stall out for no reason. After stalling out & waiting a while, vehicle can be restarted. Had taken vehicle to dealer for repairs, but cause not found. Right rear brake leaking oil.

When the brakes are applied, a scrubbing noise is heard. The brakes have been replaced several times; yer, the problem still pursists.
