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.

Brakes had to be fixed three times under a defect. No notice was received by dealer. A local dealer let me know to bring the car back to dealer to be fixed. By the last time the brakes were fixed, warranty was out. Brakes should have been fixed for free due to defect in rotors. Now there is a problem with the steering and no safety recall notice has been received, but read about it online.

Speedometer said I was doing 87 mph when car was shut off and in park. Took car to dealer, had instrument cluster replaced. Also had them check pop in the steering( made noise when I bought it from dealer with less than 31,000 miles on it. Dealer replaced instrument panel cluster, steering shaft and cruise control sensor. ( cruise control would just shut off and work periodically.) it was really just an adjustment on the brake sensor switch that needed adjustment. Had to take car back for the adjustment to brake pedal sensor.
