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.

Vehicle would not restart and left me and my family stranded 1.5 hours from home and was towed by dealer. Once I got it back there were several other problems that I had faced before that were now occurring again. The sliding doors malfunctioned about every other day. The vehicle has given us trouble starting on two other occasions, as well. These were not reported as we assumed that being a brand new vehicle that we must have left a light or something on. We knew that the problemwas with the vehicle and not our negligence.
