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.

We bought our vehicle two years ago. Within that time, none of our windows work. It began with the two back windows not rolling down and once they were down, not able to go back up. My father thought there was a short in the wiring. He proceeded to disconnect the back windows. Then the passenger front window would do the same thing: Roll down and then not go up, or not even roll down at all. We were told it was a fused. Indeed the fuse was very hot when removing it. Now, none of my windows roll down. We were told that the dealership would have to replace all the mechanisms at our cost. Hoping to trade this vehicle off.
