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.

Front bumper gets caught on parking stops. Design allows bumper to easily slide over stop, but gets caught when car is backing out. Bolts holding bumper under airdam broken and bumper material torn at stress point. No repair possible. Stayed stable for a couple of years, but then damaged section broke free without warning. Had to cut section from bumper to avoid undercarriage damage. Nlm

The front of the car drags on everything. No matter how slow or how carefully we drive, it either drags or gets the front caught. The front bumper has been damaged to the point that it is actually broken in some parts. We will be taking the car back to the dealer next week to see what can be done to replace the front bumper panel and fix the car so it does not continue to drag.
