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.

I'M TIRED OF FIXING MY CAR. I FEEL LIKE THE WORKERS WORKING ON MY CAR WERE NOT TRAINED AND WERE DRUNK THE NIGHT BEFORE.

problem #1

The leather trim on the door panel began peeling...just a bit at first. Now its peeled completely off on the rear passenger side door and halfway off the front passenger side door. The driver's side is also starting to peel on both the front and rear doors. On further inspection? This trim is really poorly attached. Can we say cheap? How much trouble would it have been to make this wrap around? No, it looks like they slathered a little glue on the door panel (bare minimum I might add..) then smoothed it on and shoved the edges into the groove with a butter knife. AWESOME. Its really embarassing...I hate having people in my car b/c it looks like a POS. Its up on the same level to me as when the ceiling starts to sag. Going to try to fix this when we get into our new home, I'll update with a solution if our idea holds (literally..)
