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.

After I had my transmission fixed a month later my car started to make loud noises and it almost did not pass inspection (in matter of fact it passed by luck) I have been poor since getting the transmission fixed and so I haven't gotten this one fixed yet- but it has something to do with the exhaust- One guy has said the Catalytic Converter ($800.00) to fix while some think it might just be something loose or the Muffler (hopefully) Murphy's law in full effect with this car - once one thing goes it all down hill from there-
