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.

While driving 70 mph engine check light came on. Vehicle started to run rough and hesitated. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, and dealer inspected and diagnosed the vehicle with the following problems: Both rear oxygen sensor needed to be replaced, the ECM needed to be reprogrammed, and both front and rear engine mounts were weak, and needed to be replaced. Also, manufacturer was notified. Replace two motor mounts and two rear oxygen sensors.

Rear muffler flange will completely rust-through, causing separation of muffler and intake pipe. Exhaust fumes will leak at this point which is near rear passengar seating. Both muffler and corresponding exhaust pipes are solid and relatively free of rust, however failure of this flange resulted in both pipe and muffler replacement. This seems rather extreme for a flange failure. Problem ocurred within four years of ownership (car was purchased new). A letter was sent to the manufacturer, they responded my stating car was out of warranty. My out of pocket expense $300.
