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 sat on the open tailgate and both tailgate support straps broke. They were both very corroded about 10 inches from the end connected to the bed. The straps appear to be very corroded at the point of breakage.

Windshield wiper motor quits intermittantly, needing to go outside and wiggle wiper arm to get going. Very much a hazard during heavy rains. Should be recalled.
