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.

grinding noise in the rear end

Shortly after buying this piece of crap, a grinding noise started in the rear end whenever you would turn to the left. It was coming from the back of the car and it sounded like the whole back end of the stupid thing was falling out. We took it to several people, some Jeep specialist, and no one could figure out what it was or how to fix it. My husband was able to jack it up and put some sort of lubricant in the rear end somewhere and it would stop for a few months and then start again and he would have to do it again. I would be scared to drive it too far when it was still running. now the engine has failed in it so the rear end seems minor now.

I wasnt sure where to put this complaint, so that why I put in under "Misc".
