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.

Battery charging at incorrect / inconsistent levels, the gage will show battery charging at 15 or higher and suddenly change to 11 or lower. Vehicle has been at the dealership for service and the mechanics either do not check it or fail to acknowledge the issue. Today the dealer provided a bulletin stating that this is normal. This bulletin is dated July 2008; however the vehicle has been in the service department several times since for this issue. Additional issue is the back up warning feature; the vehicle has sensors that notify the driver when the vehicle is too close to an object, the sensors either fail to work altogether or signals the driver when it is too late. Have nearly backed up into people / other vehicles, to date no accidents. But the vehicle size it is difficult to know when an object is behind it; or how close it is.
