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 car has had 7 batteries replaced. It has been towed three times to two different dealerships. When the failure occurs the door lock, the engine will not start, lights will not work, the car is completely dead. The last time my wife went one mile and the lights, radio, air conditioning and doors locked and would not open. She could not get the key out of the ignition. The door was opened and the car sat for two hours. When she went back to the car everything worked like nothing happened. She drove home and the next morning the battery was dead. It was towed to the dealership and the odor of burning wiring was obvious. One week later the dealer service department called to inform me that the fuse block was replaced and the radio caused the problem. The car was leased and I just returned it with 17,890 miles. We went out and purchased another car when they said the wiring and fuse block was burnt. We just let it sit in the driveway until the lease run out.

Car sometimes doesn't recognize electronic keyfob preventing me from locking the ignition prior to exiting the car. Leaving the car with the ignition unlock is a violation of many states' motor vehicle laws. Other times car will not let me enter the car or start the car because it doesn't recognize the electronic keyfob. Problem recurs periodically - sometimes a few times a week other time operates fine for a month or more.
