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.

Blind spot right side radar (safety feature) failed after 41 months. Car was purchased new in November of 2011. Inspected failed part and found a bulge on edge of the plastic container. Opened the device and found metal corrosion on and in the metal case. It appears that the water seal either broke or was not sufficient to stop water leakage. Metal corrosion material was on the print circuit board which I believe cased the failure.

Warning lights on both mirrors for blind spot detection stay on always - with the ding ding ding sounds ringing on and off - weather driving down the road or sitting still parked, if the car is running, the problem is there. I believe this unsafe issue should be fixed by a recall, as it is a problem that is very unsafe & dangerous, many folks whom have purchased this vehicle are experiencing the same unsafe problem! I paid for this feature on the vehicle, to add safety and now it is causing just the opposite, unsafe driving conditions. This really concerns me, a safety feature failing on all these cars and especially at such low mileage. With this feature malfunctioning, it is much more dangerous than texting or talking on the phone while driving. What is the criteria to get a recall in place, do people have to have accidents or die to get a problem recalled, how is it decided.
