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.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
The contact had problems with the rear hatchback opening while driving since the vehicle was purchased. After multiple attempts to repair the defect by the dealership the contact was alerted of NHTSA recall campaign 04V150000. The recall notices were sent to the dealership 15 days before she purchased the vehicle, and the recall repairs did not solve the problem. The gas gauge on the vehicle did not work accurately. The dealership replaced the electronic control module (ECM) multiple times, but the problem persisted. They suggested that she determine the amount of gas used by the miles traveled. The locks did not unlock the door when the vehicle was in park. The contact had to turn the vehicle on and off to unlock the doors and the manual locks did not always work. There have been no repairs made to the locks.
