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.

1. driving 2. irritating ticking from passenger side of engine bay. Seems to cause wear and tear on belts on engine. So far no consequences as belt hasn't broken. 3. no part have been replaced as of yet. 4. in short it seems almost all evo ix's are affected by this belt wear on the idler pulley, power steering pulley, and possibly others. I just don't want to see one of these belts break on this performance turbo car at high speeds... could cause many injuries in my opinion. Keep and eye out for many many others to send in a report in the next few days on the evo ix's as I will be posting up a link to this site on our main community site.
