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.

problem #1

Driver armrest sags; most uncomfortable!! when armrest is put down to the horizontal position, it sags (leans forward). Driver's right arm becomes painful, as it is continually sliding off the front edge of the armrest, when driving. I've had the car to the dealer; he replaced the armrest in warranty, but the leaning forward position is just the same---it was not cured. The dealer said there was nothing further to be done. Incidentally, the passenger's armrest is just fine---it is positioned at the proper right angle. Incidentally, noone has sat on, or heavily leaned on the armrest to cause the difficulty. Sure would appreciate your help with this aggravating problem.
