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 purchased new, this car has been involved in a number of recalls that have/have not been announced. The first incident occured 3 months after purchase--at slow speeds, the vehicle made a noise similar to that of worn brake pads/rotor at slow speeds. Upon my personal inspection, the blue lug nuts were less than hand tight on drivers front and passenger rear--the car was taken to dealership for first oil change and to inspect this defect--they stated that this vehicle was not part of the lug nut recall that was previously issued on other Srx models.I stated concern of the integrity of the wheel studs since they were likely stressed while driving with loose nuts, along with potential uneven tire wear, but the dealership did not agree. 6 months later, a recall was issued for door handles--the fix was removing and milling down parts and placing back on. 6 months later, the car would nearly stall out/have delayed response to acceleration after stopping at a stop sign--this could have cause serious injury if occured while pulling out into traffic (luckily never the case)-- thought this was due to wife letting gas level reach low level before refilling, but found out was electronic issue in the program (recalled and fixed). 2 months later the car does not shift well between rapid acceleration--recieved notification of another computer issue that controls the transmission. (although a card was sent in the mail notifying of this issue, this did not show up on the NHTSA website when searched). A true concern for the safety of my wife and 2 small children--additionally due to the nature of some of these issues, there is concern with the mechanical integrity of this vehcile in the future--stress on wheel studs, drawn out automatic shifting causing stress on the transmission.although many of these items have been "fixed" these corrections do not take into account other damge
