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.

After stopping in my garage, I used the remote to unlock and open the rear driver side power sliding door. The door began to open, and I reached in to pick up my bag. The door caught suddenly and started to close quickly. I reached up with my right arm to stop the door from closing on me, which it did. I then tried to back out of the car in case the door suddenly closed again. The door caught again, this time slamming into my right cheek and causing a concussion. 10 days later, and I am still recovering. I don't know what to do to correct the problem, but I don't want others to face the same possibility of injury.

The automatic sliding doors the sensors do not do their job!! we questioned this with the salesman upon purchase and we were reassured they work fine then we asked about it after purchase while in for other repairs still reassured they work fine cause "if it doesn't do it while it is here then there isn't anything wrong with it". (that is what the tech's always say when they don't have an answer) we had the worst run in with the electronic doors this morning 6/19/2008! drivers side. I a grown 115 pound 5foot 4 woman was pinned hip to hip my right knee was resting on the floor board facing in the car. While I pushed back to get free the door only made the noises of it trying to open ddd ddd ddd it did not for at least a minute that is a long time to have that continually adding more pressure while the door tried to force itself closed on me as an adult thank god it was not one of my smaller children. I am positive that would have caused extreme injuries on one of them or any child. Im surprised it didn't injure me worse. I was sure the latch had punctured my thigh fortunately it had not. I was left with a good size probably 1 1/2 - 2 in hard lump and a wonderfully colorful bruise and lots of soreness not only to the touch but walking and putting my weight down on my right leg.
