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.

At the time of purchase the vehicle had an oil leak. The dealer agreed to fix the leak. The vehicle has been taken to the dealer several times and each time a different repair was made but the vehicle continued to use a quart of oil every 3000 miles. An independent mechanic stated that the front seal was the cause of the oil consumption. The vehicle pulled to the right while driving. The front end wobbled while driving. The consumer heard a popping noise from the driver and passenger front windows when closing them.
