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.

Since Oct. 2014 I have had issues with the"stability system" to be serviced yet it works"?" the hood hasn't ever stayed up which had been a pain being starting a couple months ago the battery starting having issues in the cold weather. Something is draining it and I don't know from where.

The hood does not stay up on it's own. I have to use a stick to prop it open.

I have been hearing a rattle(front end) for 2 years while driving the vehicle and inspected by jacking up car and visually inspecting. When I was driving the car on the highway the steering wheel will jerk to the right and want to go to another lane and the stability control light will come on. I found a inch and a half gap in frame that is rusted and was never welded. The gap is under the drivers side frame rail under car. It appears to have been there for a long time due to metal fatigue and rust. I took pictures of the area. The frame could break due to this and makes the vehicle a safety hazard. I do feel safe to drive this car and the idea of other vehicles with this defect as I have searched online and founds others with the same complaint. I also do not feel safe selling this car as it is a danger on the road. Please me contact me by email. Thank you

Went through the car wash. During final stage (wind to blow off moisture) windshield header flew off car. After inspection it was revealed that the only method of attachment to the vehicle was double sided tape. This is unacceptable especially given the location of the piece where there is a lot of wind (front of roof).

While driving power steering failed. This caused the steering wheel. Back door does not open. While the consumer drives the vehicle it bounces. The vehicle moves with out foot on the gas pedal as a result of high idle.
