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.

2 complaints. When starting off from a stop position and making a hard left the service traction system light comes on and the trac off light comes on and the ABS light comes on and the car makes a grinding noise. Only does this at this time. The second complaint is the overhead driver control panel will not come on and then after driving a ways it will come on. When off the air or heat or defrost will not work. I have replaced it once and now it is doing it again. I have not done anything about the lights for the traction.
