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.

The power doors, both sides and the rear hatch, open at random, either when vehicle is parked and turned off or while driving the vehicle. I have found my vehicle on the street with a door open, once during a snow storm and the inside was inundated with snow. I'm afraid I might find a homeless person sleeping there or a nest of skunks perhaps, or maybe stripped clean by a thief. The key fob has been eliminated as a suspect of inadvertently operating the doors. Once I closed a side door with the button on the inside of the car and after a few moments, it reopened. On three incidences doors opened while driving. This I assume to be a real safety hazard. Imagine if the rear was packed with luggage or groceries and the hatched open while driving on the highway. I wouldn't want to be the car driving behind me! the car was purchased 09/08/09 and currently has 4400 miles on it. These events happen sporadically and I have yet to have the dealer look into it (I had to cancel the first appointment due to a snowstorm) but I suspect they will think I'm crazy just as I thought my wife was crazy when the first time she told me the rear hatch opened while driving. I didn't believe her until it happened to me a few months later. And it happened to me again more recently.
