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.

Was in fatal accident on May 8 2009 in des moines, ia. It was light rain that night and I made an attempt to turn a corner and slide right through and fence and dropped down a hill about and estimated 20 feet. The anti-brake system failed as well as the airbag not deploying is my concern. This was not the first incident. The one took place in December of 2009. A deer ran out in front of the car and the same thing happened I was they conducted an investigation, but was not informed to where I could understand. Now the case is with their lawyers who won't answer the phone.

At about 80,000 miles grinding noise in right front wheel developed, replaced brakes and rotors found the right front wheel bearing was bad and had to have it replaced. At about 84,000 miles the lifters were making a ticking noise that sounded like a helicopter, replaced the lifters at a cost of $1600 this was just one month after the final payment of the 5 year loan one month after the lifters were replaced the engine seized up needed to be towed and I'm told that the main bearing has gone bad and the engine needs to be replaced or rebuilt.
