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.

Soon after purchase there was a clicking noise that began in the rear of the vehicle when applying brakes. The clicking noise then turned into a popping noise that could be felt when applying the brakes. There is wind noise on the left front door post, noise in the front end of vehicle, the right headlight is inoperable, the horn is inoperable, and the wipers do not turn off at times.
