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.

I just had the driver side passenger door malfunction in such a way that the door could nor be opened manually, with the remote or with the power button in the car. This is an obvious safety problem. Good thing I did not have an accident where the right side of the van was damaged or obscured. God forbid a fire. And guess what, the 36000 mile warranty just ran out. As did $500 of my money. Another problem is with the power doors and power trunk (hatch). They will not close properly. These openings will attempt to close, but right before they complete the action, they reverse to a fully open position. The dealer cannot seem to fix the problem, even after multiple attempts to correct the problem. They have had may vans in their shop for at least 12 days N the past two years trying to fix this problem. I will give the dealer some credit, after the last visit I have not had this problem. It only took the 6-7 visits to get it right. I wonder if my current problem has anything to do with this last visit? *dimsii IVOQ entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis*769303.

The power sliding doors had become inoperative. The dealer stated the motor was inoperative. The inside switch on the left and right side doors were hard to open. The dealer stated that the problem was due to a defective roller. The over head console locked out/switch engaged. The cable was disengaged. Mr scc

Nobody was hurt either time but this happened twice and the manufacturer has failed to fix it yet. The car is brand new and the electrical system has just shut it down on two separate occasions while driving 30 mph (once in a parking lot and once on a city street). My family is afaid to drive it now a days since my wife has been stranded without power two times. When the car shuts down, it loses all power and can not be restared. We have had to get the car towed back to us on 2 separate occasions in the first month we owned the car.
