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.

During normal driving, heard extremely alarming loud creaking, squeaking noises from front end. Steering became sloppy and erratic. Took it to R&R automotive in lex. Pk. md and had complete front end replaced, due to worn out ball joints, idler arms, pitman arms, tie rods, sway bar ends which could not be lubricated. Replaced with those equipped with grease fittings. $1750

There is a constant feeling that the tires and front end are both out of alignment and tires out balance(they are not) causing a constant rough ride on the smoothest pavement beginning at 55mph. Dealer has changed tires twice re-balanced tires 4 times and re-aligned 3 times. Can you check.
