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.

Water/rain leak excessively through the seals of my convertible. Dealership is aware of the problem and after taking the vehicle there four times for this problem, they told me that it is a convertible and it is suppose to leak. I know other people who have the same vehicle and do not have the same problem as I.
