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.

Only run 12000 mile less than year there is rattle sound on speedometer" specially navigation screen. They try fix the problem, and tell me, they can not fix, because it coming from speedometer. And print our one piece paper, which is MINIofficial paper as below" subject: Buzzing noise from speedometer situation: When the vehicle is deceleration the customer might experience a buzzing noise form the speedometer, when speedometer needle is between 0 and 12 miles per hour. General information: This is normal operation"???. what?? normal" this sound make me crazy, same sound everytime I run. I was talk to MINItec person, many people complain about this problem, but MINIU.S.a don;T recall anything. They should recall for this problem, since they agree there is noise form speedometer" I have printed paper from MINIAlso there is noise inside of car, they already fix the dashboard, and, side door noise.
