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.

Vehicle would not start; repaired and then symptom happened again. Said to be a faulty water bladder designed to remove leaking water from convt top in the trunk area, caused by two buttons on the convertible top missing. Dealer suggested using a car cover to prevent it from happening again. Problem: The design is flawed and there is no notice that something this dangerous could happen. When the electrical parts failed, (entire wire loom was compromised with no warning!) no safety items would work. If vehicle was on major highway, death would probably occur. Vehicle(s) should be recalled and new system designed to eliminate water intrusion. I understand from internet this is an ongoing safety problem. I was charged $ because water leaks are not covered by warranty. Due to a design flaw and no notification from the company of the dangers of this design flaw; no mention anywhere in the operations manual regarding the location of the" buttons" or the water bladder, or the chance that the vehicle could become disabled due to the design flaw. This vehicle, with this problem could have shut down on any of the many highways I drive leaving me, or worse, my wife in danger and powerless with no warning of any problem. When the wire loom in my Camaro and fuse box failed, all brake lights and all other power failed. This reminds me of an incident years ago on the Pennsylvania/New Jersey walt whitman bridge where a new Ford product was run over and all four occupants killed by a tractor trailer. The cause was found to be a bad computer module.

The convertible top has become increasingly slower when putting it up and down. There are signs on the top of the car where it latches of something grinding. Took to dealer and was advised that the top operated at normal speed when compared to a similar model. Currently operation is exceeding 20 seconds for the top to be lowered or raised. Also top is not going down all the way as the fabric obscures the mirror when driving.
