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've had so many problems with this car. For one if i don't let it run for about 10 mins it will cut off about the first three times i make a complete stop. My radio just all of a sudden stopped working recently, it keeps burning gas too darn fast, air doesn't' work right, interior easily falls apart, and something is wrong with my car door. It drops every time i open and I'm afraid it's going to fall off pretty soon. I have brand new spark plugs on this car and i keep up with my oil changes. Also when i drive it, it sounds like my tires are flat but their not! So i have to hear this annoying loud thundering sound constantly! Help!
