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.

Peeling interior paint - two of the four doorhandles paint is peeling causing sharp and jagged edges resulting in cut fingers. Brakes - all brakes and rotors bad at 39,000 miles and had to be replaced. Way too early! now the brakes squeal all the time, are soft and had to be flushed 2 times within 6 months of each other. Windows - continuing issues with the windows screeching when going up and down. Attempted to fix three times and just keeps repeating. Is starting to scuff/scratch the glass and leave oil streaks. Was told this is normal. Rear liftgate (manual) - struts freeze every winter so that the tailgate does not go up all the way. Have hit head on this numerous times. Been replaced 3 times and counting.

We took our vehicle to the dealer for a 3rd time now (look for my other complaint on this website on electrical problems/windshield problems) for the same problem plus a number of multiple other problems. The problem that the dealer can't seem to remedy is the windshield wipers and wiper spray keep coming on all by themselves and cannot be turned off unless you turn the vehicle off and then restart it. They've replaced the windshield wiper module but they still come on randomly. The heated seats sometimes don't work and in order to get them to work you must restart the car. The front passenger window will randomly not roll up or down from the drivers side master switch and will only start working after restarting the vehicle. When I took my car to get serviced (oil change) the mechanic noticed several leaks under the vehicle, one coming from the engine bell housing another from the rack and pinion area and the third from the power steering pump housing area. When we took it to the dealer they cleaned the engine pan (I have before pictures) and added an engine dye and they stated they found no leaks, we'll check it again after a few hundred miles. They also cleaned up the other leaks from the other areas and claimed no leaks. Our mechanic also noticed while rotating the tires that the front right rotors were deeply grooved which answers my question as to why my brakes have been squeaking. He says that with only 10,000 miles it is not normal for them to be grooved, and is definitely a defect with the calipers probably sticking. Showed the dealer and the service writer stated it was normal, that cannot be normal. So now they resurfaced the rotor and the brakes are still squeaking. After bringing my vehicle home from the dealer for repairs the car locked "itself" I did not lock it, the car keys were not even in my hands anymore they were hanging on the key rack. There are definitely some major electrical problems and mechanical problems with this vehicle.
