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.

First thing that went wrong with the car is the clock for no reason at all it changes to 12:00 it does it when the car is on and running it also does it when you first turn the car on. This has been replaced once and has failed a second time again. Second is my gear shifter I have an automatic and it sticks in park all the time and all year long the first time it happened I was sitting at a gas pump and I was completely stuck and it wouldn't move so I had the car towed to my dealer and they fixed it but it stuck 10 + more times since 5 times I took it to the dealer and 3 times it was repaired. I bought my car in 2004 and too this day it still sticks I actually have parts being ordered again to get it fixed. Third is my key and alarm I can't use my security alarm on my car because when its set on it goes off about every half hour for no reason. Fourth is my head lights and brake lights. I was traveling in a big city buffalo when all three of my brake lights stopped working I went to an auto shop to get them replaced and they replaced them right there and the new ones wouldn't even work. My headlights go off when ever and turn back on after awhile. Even when I'm driving down the street but the dealer claims they can't find anything wrong with that part. Fifth is my ball joint was defected and I went threw 4 pairs of tires within 2 years before my dealer realized what that problem was. Sixth both the rear strut holding mounts just fell off car and my struts went threw my back bottom trunk. The dealer said he never seem anything like it. The right side went first and that was fixed then about a week later the left side went I replaced everything brand new and it happened again a third time the left strut and holding mount failed. I actually have parts ordered for that as well right now. A smaller complaint is the cig. Lighter outlet doesn't work, and that's being replaced for the second time.
