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.

problem #3

Jan 152003


  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles


The piston rod blew a 2.5 inch hole through the engine casing at 158000 km. We had to completely replace the engine. The engine warning light never came on to warn us that a major part failure was about to take place. The back shoulder belts have never functioned properly. The brakes seem to need frequent replacement due to corosion of parts. Could you please let me know if anyone else has complained about a blown out engine? thank you

Computer would not allow car to start. Paint chipping on all fender edges. Constant flat tires, one near wreck on freeway due to leaking rims that mechanic says should never be driven in the winter becasue the rims will not hold up to the weather.
