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.

1st incident--due to the failure of the "clutch master cylinder"(leaking) its hard to make the gear shift(manual).dealer fixed it. 2nd incident--"check engine light "came on (mileage-3909)-- software need update.dealer fixed it. 3rd incident-- rattling noise from the door back of the driver side.(mileage--6858). It was loose window channel. Dealer replace the parts. 4th incident--"check engine light" came on again (mileage-8882).oxygen sensor failured.dealer replaced the parts. 5th incident-- "brake light "come and go(mileage--9449). Due to brake master cylinder leaking and at the same time the dealer also found the clutch master cylinder leaking too, now the same parts failed twice within months.I would like you to look into these incident to verify is this car model have the trend in failure of these parts which really concerned me on safety issues, specially the "clutch master cylinder"(failed twice) and the "brake master cylinder" on a brand new car.
