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.

When it rains it goes into vehicle where dome light and electronic computer were mounted on the ceiling which may cause an electrical short. Also, on middle rear seat both seatbelts jammed and would not lock in place, which wont protect child in event of a crash. Dealer replaced passenger's side seatbelt, and fixed driver's rear seatbelt. Finally, rear middle window pin kept falling, which allowed the windows to stay open. Dealer fixed the problem 3 times, but on the fourth time, they replace the whole unit.
