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.

Replaced both seat adjusters. Replaced battery after it broke and leaked on the cable operating the 4WD. Replaced the cable operating the 4WD. Replaced both back windows, (2-door) the seals kept coming out in front of the doors making it hard to open the doors. Replaced drivers side mirror. Seat belt warning light was staying on. Lastly the lower ball joints, tie rod ends, pittman arm and idler arm have been replaced. All done under warranty except the front end components. What a crappy car!

Consumer put vehicle in 4 wheel drive, slid off road and had to be towed. At that time consumer noticed only 2-wheels were turning, even though 4-wheel drive was clearly engaged.
