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.

I opened the rear lift gate from inside the car. I had just parked curbside at my 13 year old daughter's school, as I do each school day morning to drop her off. As she leaned in the back cargo space to pull out her back pack and lunch box the cargodoor started to close on its own on my daughter. Neither of us had pressed the button. I was unaware at first as I was in the front seat facing forward, I heard her scream and was watching in horror as she was being crushed by the door between the door and her bag and the cargo compartment. I did not understand why the door did not treverseand was unsure in that split second if I pressed the button would it reverse the door or crush her further. I also was unaware if I had enough time to jump out of the car, run to the back. To try to pull the door up. This came close to being a catastrophe. If my daughter was smaller or younger or in a different position. She is bruised and I am really concerned a car is on themarket like this. I saw other complaints like mine on line today after this happened. The dealership is being less than helpful not to car has locked me out twice with the keyless entry after the car was unlocked. It relocked. The navigation and bluetooth toss me regularly. I think this car has a wiring issue on top of the lace of safety with the back gate.
