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 cup holder was poorly designed, it is too shallow. My cup tips over everyday on the way to work and i spill my coffee. It also causes a distraction to the driver when this occurs and is therefore a safety hazard. There is no cup holder for passenger in front. There is one in the console but it is difficult to access from the front. The cup holder is also in the way if being used to access the ashtray. Smoking and drinking become a balancing act when driving causing eyes to be off the road for longer than two seconds. The lighter is in a peculiar place behind the steering wheel. I drove my car for 6 months before i knew i had one because i couldn't see it. One day i put the lighter back in and it popped out at me when it was hot, fortunately i wasn't driving as i had to search for it.
