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.

This is one of many problems I have had with this vehicle. I have had the fuel pump replaced, then the water pump, then the head gasket. Finally I think nothing else could possibly go wrong with this piece of junk car and the AC head unit must be replaced. About six months later the turn signal quits working. I get that fixed and the check engine light starts coming on and the EGR valve needs to be replaced. Now I think I may be close to having almost everything working all at once.... but my rear defrost has just bit the dust. As soon as I can trade this car in and not lose more money I will be so happy to see it go... Oh yeah and I almost forgot it seems that the entire hood has little tiny dots of missing paint (maybe it will hold up a little longer).

This is just one of the MANY problems I've had and am having. NEVER will I buy one of these again!! I will definitely research my next car purchase in depth and make sure I go to a dealer I have known FOREVER and TRUST.
