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.

Passenger side double door hinges got so tight that they snapped the hinge. No lube would loosen prior to breaking. This week the right door exact same thing. Hinge snapped. The original hinges are defective and are unable to be lubed. They know they have a problem because the new ones are made with grease fittings. I just looked on line at a forum and there are several listings for the same problem for years.
