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've had brakes fixed, and have replaced the tires twice! the back-end keeps making noise every time you change the gear from park to drive or any other gear. The brakes squeal a lot and the back end seems like it wants to come off, very loud and very loud squealing. Would not recommend anyone to buy this type of vehicle and I won't buy another one! car has had these problems since purchased new in 1998, but under a 5 year lease, I feel stuck! very dissatisfied customer!
