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.

SX4 4-cyl

I have had this SX4 since 3/1/11, aside from this particular problem, I have no other issues with the vehicle. Last spring, around may, I had the front lower control arms replaced. Only having this car for 2 years at the time, and here I am needing them replaced again. I have never had this problem with any prior vehicle. I love this car, I don't want to trade it in. I would feel guilty trading it in, and putting another family in this car, should something go terribly wrong. My husband and I debated what the culprit could be for the noises the car made from 15 mph to 70 mph (rock in a box) sound and the car shaking throughout the car, but also in the steering wheel. I didn't want to accept that the problem was the control arm again. So we replaced the stabilizer bar bushings. The mechanic that replaced the bushings said replacing the bushings were not going to solve the entire problem because the ball joints were done, they needed replaced. I also have been told by another mechanic rotating my tires, have said the same thing. Replacing the stabilizer bushings help the ( rock in a box) sound, but not the shakiness throughout the car and it sounds like the car is falling apart the way it rattles on the smoothest street here. Does this problem fall under any type of warranty or a recall introduction?
