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.

Outlander 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5 miles


Have had a constant squeal and pulling and drifting in Outlander for the last 4 months. Have had it checked out 3 times before. Today it was louder and car did not feel right. Got off the highway and car power was lost. Manuervered car to right hand side. Turned everything off. Turned car back on and it was "fine". called roadside assistance and was disconnected three times. Called 411 went straight to closest dealer who went for ride a long and said it was fine. Drove towards home and car was not driving right still drifting more, squeal was back, strange acceleration noises, speedometer seemed off, taching was high. Went to dealer closest to home. They are looking at it now.
