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.

I have been in the dealership for the same symptom being a squealing low pitch to a hum when I turn left into any parking spot. My brakes and rotors have been replaced along with a caliper spring. They keep on saying that they have fixed the problem each time and it comes back. I have been in four times for this. Also I have had an ECU computer replaced due to a check engine light appearing. Lastly, my glove box has been replaced because it was installed with the light on permanently. This problem still exists because the dash board is not perfectly flush with the edge of the glove box, therefore the light continues to stay on and I can see it when I drive at night.

There is a "clunking" sound coming from the left front of the car that can be felt through the steering wheel when making slow turns while going over rain ditch.
