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.

The contact states there are multiple problems with the vehicle. She has taken the vehicle to the dealership. On April 26, 2005 they replaced the computer, harness, throttle body, engine relay switch, clamps and hangers to the exhaust system. Then on August 11, 2005 they replaced some missing strut tower nuts. There was a whistling sound coming from the vehicle when started. The safety and check oil indicator lights came on. Later, on September 27, 2005 the dealership replaced the engine, exhaust hanger and clamps again, pedal and pedal springs and engine manifold gasket. On October 19 the left tail light was loose, and the clutch pedal went down to the floor. The traction control button and the trunk release buttons would not work. Also, the power steering bracket was loose. They replaced the left tail light, clutch pedal, and the missing right muffler insulator. Updated11/29/05.
