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.

Good car to start out with, but should not be expected to last a long time. These cars are fairly cheap. I had a lot of minor issues (engine light sensor knocked off; trunk release failure; defrost issues, etc) but didn't have any big issues until 2013. That's when the gears started to grind. They got a bit worse as time went on, but I learned how to manage and maintain the transmission so it wouldn't get worse. So, overall, this is a decent car for a cheap, but won't necessarily last you a lifetime.
