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 just read the very first complaint on my car while ago..... every single thing thats happened to her, has happened to me. I've always been told to never buy a grandam....but I couldnt really afford anything else. I needed something reliable. To make a long story short, I bought my car in September of last year. I have had little small problems, but nothing big til about 5 months after I purchased it. I kept hearing grinding noises coming from my front one can seem to figure out that problem, so its still occuring. My drivers side window sticks and goes up and down when it wants to.... the lock pad on my drivers side, fell out and even with it, screwed down to the door panel, still wont work right. The car rides really really rough. Had everything from suspension to axles checked out, nothing seems to be wrong....but I know theres something messed up badly.... somewhere. My ignition is my biggest problem tho. I noticed it at about 44 thousand miles.... sometimes when I went to crank it..... it would hesitate badly and sometimes not start at all. It has gotten alot worse now..... now all it does is click like its a battery problem.... it will click sometimes, then on the second try, it will crank with hesitation... other times, there is no sign of a problem. My back window leaks air constantly and leaks when it rains.... the trunk leaks when it rains.... what else?? how bout everything!!!! my car sucks!!!!
