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.

Mariner 6-cyl

We have taken our marinar back at least 2 times complaining of outrageous road noise while driving. This is the worst vehicle I have ever driven or ridden in with this type of noise including diesel trucks. The dealer says it is the tires but they are the original tire that came with the vehicle (continentals). I will not drive the vehicle due to this road noise. Friends that have been in the vehicle with me can not believe the decibel level of the road noise and that it is unbearable. I have a friend of the family who also has a marinar and he also has taken his vehicle back to the dealer 3 times for this road noise to know avail. Can you advise me on what to do about this situation.
