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.

This clunking noise is driving me crazy. I have had people look at it and they have no idea what it is. So I would have no idea on what to tell anyone due to the fact alls I know is it clunky when I put in reverse.

Update from May 16, 2015: I would like to add asking for the mileage is ridiculous it doesn't matter if the problem exists it exists I do not sit and write my mileage

I have had my brakes done and redone three times in the last year. I had a friend do them and when I still had problems, took them to the local dealer, when I still had problems I took them back to my local repair man. Everyone tells me I have the best product and there is nothing wrong. All products are in good working condition and have lots of life left to them! But down the road I go clunk clunk clunk when I apply pressure to my brakes! More problems with this Pontiac!
