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.

My husband was killed in an accident involving this vehicle. It says in the accident report that the BCM was unresponsive as well as another computer system and the wipers were on in dry weather. I believe a defect contributed to the accident. My husband was traveling with the right of way on a motorcycle when the sedan left turned in front of him. I will give you more information when I receive some documents from other family members. Thank you
