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.

Galant 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have a 2002 Galant, it was the first brand new car I bought for myself, the brakes squeaked the first day I've had to get the breaks done twice already and it only has 64,000 miles I've also gone through 2 sets of tires I'm about to buy new tires this week. In the last 2 months I've noticed it drives a lot harder now, there's odd noises coming out of the engine and it sounds like something is rubbing on the front tires when I drive. It pulls to the left really bad when I brake. If it's idling it sounds like it's struggling for air and shakes a little. I'm not even done paying for this car yet.
