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.

2005 Spectra front end makes a rattling noise in the front end that could be heard inside the house when backing out of driveway. The vehicle had been taken to the dealer six times for this problem but they were unable to resolve the problem. The consumer stated the problem had been rectified. The dealer replaced the front struts, insulators, pads and flange self-locking unit. The left front strut nut was crossed-threaded, which made it difficult to find the rattle. Updated 09/13/06.
