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.

From date of purchase of the vehicle I told the SalesRep I would take the car providing you guy's take care of the front end problem which is in the steering and braking system. Car was pulling to the right when you hit the brakes, and vibration as well. Taken the car back and they switched out the rotors and replaced them. But still when slowing down or going down on a down grade, you hear and feel the brakes grinding as hell. This car has been taken back to the buyer twice and still, the problem exist. My last visit to the repair place was having the strut assy. replaced and the problem is still going on. I really don't think they know what they are doing when it come to this car. I am about to write it off as a lemon, but I really like this damn vehicle. Can someone give me some suggestion to tell these people on what to do for repairing this vehicle.
