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.

Caller took vehicle to dealer S for repair 4 times for same problem. The first time the dealer tightened the nuts that held the front end. The second time the dealer replaced the upper control arm on the front passenger side. They added some foam to the floor board because of the noise the floor was making. The third time they found something wrong with it but they did not have anyone to work on it. Caller was back to dealer today and they cant find what was wrong with vehicle. Manufacturer has not been contacted yet. Vehicle is still not repaired.
