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.

The tail gate window will not pop open. What a pain! I had to climb in back, open the latch with an allen wrench while digging down between window and trim. I popped the latch, took the door apart and the little plastic piece is 3 dollars and they send you 2, why is that?

It will break again, so save money and time by using a zip tie. The dealer wanted a 100 bucks for this fix. Do it yourself. Oh yes if you have cargo in the back when it goes out good luck. Fix took me two hours.
