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.

The "yaw sensor" fails in these cars, frequently causing a sudden braking on one side of the car and pulling the car in that direction. This is a real hazard: The car suddenly brakes by itself without warning. The problem is well described in these discussion forums: the original sensors for this car were discontinued and the only replacement part available is four to five times the price of the original part -- over $1000. This has led to a market in used sensors that are also in danger of failing. This is a real hazard.
