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.

I purchased my first brand new car on 03-01-04, since I had my vehicle it stared to make rattling noices when I press on the gas. The noice got loader and loader. I mitsu to fix the problem, I visited them 3 times and yet no one could find a problem. I waited for one month to be able to see the reginal manager which then he gave me a lesson on types of gasoline then handed me a bottle of fuel injector fluid and told me to drive a little faster to surpass the noice.he also told me to use premium gas which the book manual states to use regular, yet ive done what he stated and I saved my receipts yet no difference at all. The noice gets loader everyday and I feel embarrassed instead of proud of my purchase.... just recently the airconditioner did not turn on for almost and hour and I did not mention this but when I had the vehicle for 2 weeks it cut off while waiting at the light............ I asked the manager what to do if his recommedations do not work, he stated to talk to dealer to see if he could give me a deal. I cant I have no more money. I saved $6000 just to purchase this vehicle! I am tapped out and dont know what to do..... please help me iris pena.
