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.

Bought this car for what I thought was a good deal. I paid $1000 for it. It had a couple very small rust spots on the liftgate, and otherwise it is a very presentable, professional looking car. It is the wagon version, but mechanically the same as the sedan. Came with every possible option, except for the 6 CD changer. Knowing the car needed front brake pads when I bought it, I purchased them and began to put them on at home. During this, I glanced underneath the vehicle, and to my horror, the whole front sub-frame was rusted out, with almost a 5 inch hole, right behind where the control arm mounts. For those who don't know much about cars, this is the simple terms--The wheel was about to fall off if it rusted any more.-- I did some research and tried to find parts cars on locally, and on craigslist. Unfortunately, almost all of the vehicles I found had some type of corrosion on the front subframe. These are great overall cars, but absolutely DO NOT purchase one of these cars unless you have it put on a lift, and checked underneath.
