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 sliding door on the driver's side does not shut properly. We have learned to open the front driver's side door prior to shutting that door and "most" times, the door will shut properly. Sometimes, it retracts again. This is a very annoying problem when you think that you've got the doors shut only to find that the door is wide open again. If we are trying to get in the vehicle without the dog getting in, it adds additional frustration. If it is raining, it is a problem because we must stand around waiting to make sure it does shut properly. Sometimes, it does shut - mostly - but leaves part unshut. This can be a safety issue. according to dealership employee - this is a recall item...
