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.

Recall campaign 03V093000 concerning rear view mirror switch: Consumer stated the automatic lock failed to operate after recall repairs were performed. Notified the dealer, who informed the consumer that the problem had nothing to do with the recall. Consumer stated that the vehicle was not experiencing any problem with the automatic lock until this repair was done. When auto was taken back the desk service manager took a look at vehicle and said the button was sticking. Which was causing both doors not to lock. Which had never been a problem before until afterwards, they told the consumer the button needed replacement.
