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.

December 2000, the vacuum leak in the front caused the vehicle to lose power. It was taken into moody's to be fixed, they blew a fuse for the cigarette lighter. May 14, 2001 brake and ABS light went on after car stalled in parking lot. Took to dealer, they had to order parts, it took a week. Dealer fixed it on May 22, 2001, they replaced the electronic brake and traction control, replaced four wheel anti-lock.. the same problem occured a few days later. Reported to dealer, took it in for repairs, there was a wire that was frayed. They replaced the wire and then blew the cigarette fuse again. Steering wheel started making a crunching plastic sound while turning and while shut off on June 6, 2001. Reported to dealer on same day. Took it in morning of June 7, 2001, they found a bulliten on that problem that was sent out by the manufacturer. They cannot find parts in the Twin Cities area, I have to wait a week or more for parts to come in.( dot number: )
