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 back passenger door suddenly stopped opening. Unable to operate the latch from inside or outside of the vehicle. This could trap an occupant inside or prevent a rescuer from getting a occupant out. This was noticed when vehicle was stopped, in park, all doors were unlocked, when a passenger atrempted to open the door from outside in order to retrieve her belongings. Later attempts to operate the door failed, including locking/unlocking with key, with interior unlock button, with window up and down and with car on and off.
