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 valve stems corrode & have to be replaced "?????? why should I as the consumer need to replace because somebody came up with the idea of "new improved " stems ??????not only is this an inconvience, but also a great expense !!!!!! people who live a limited income should not have to worry about this... I had the car 1 year & had to "rebuild" my stems because I could not afford the price of new ones. Now I am having problems again ??? this is not fair. I never had this problem with my other cruiser, how can you verify this as not being a problem ??"

While driving the car on a highway at approximately 50 mph the driver side rear window shattered. Most of the glass went inside the car. No rock or other object was found that might have caused the failure.
