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.

The rear handle on the rear hatch broke, the plastic housing that holds the handle broke, like if the plastic is not strong enough to support the forces exerted on the handle.

The vehicle is a rental vehicle. Cusotmer rented the van and went out to the lot to put his belongins in the vehicle. When he pulled on the handle to close the hatch, the plastic housing broke and the handle came loose, there is a metal bold that was attached to the plastic, that piece cut the customers hand right hand, between his thumb and index finger. His wound was cleaned by the first aid at the airport and then we transported him to del sol medical center where his wound was sealed with medical "glue" instead of stitches and he received a tetanus shot.
