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.

Clunk from the front, some place in the steering wheel assembly when turning. How do I fix it, or is it anything to be concerned with? front seats are so very uncomfortable. We have added seat cushions in an attempt to have better support, yet they continue to be horrible.
