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 passenger side door hinge broke completely off without excessive force being applied. The dealership indicated this occurred because the door was not frequently used. In an attempt to repair the hinge, the dealership made the problem worse. The dealership stated the pin seized up due to no lubrication.
