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.

Battery totally dead at 19000 miles (20 months-orig. Battery), 31K miles (39 months-1st replacement) and now 40K miles (52 months-2nd replacement). There are no warning signs that battery is getting weak. First two times diagnosis was just that battery wouldn't hold a charge-->replace battery. I previously have asked for a more in depth diagnosis to find root cause of why battery wouldn't hold a charge. Now that vehicle is out of warranty, dealer is happy to do the $70 diagnosis. If that had been done the first time (under warranty), I probably wouldn't have had to come back the second and now third time for the same problem!
