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.

Rear hatch power lock disengages leaving rear hatch ajar at unexpected times. Also tries to disengage while driving 5 mph or less. It is almost like someone is holding a remote entry device( which I don't have) and I hear a click, click as it disengages the lock. Yesterday it happened at least ten times, every time I put the van in park the rear hatch un-latches and I have to shut the vehicle off and use my key to open the hatch the rest of the way for it to close. Also for the first time it has interfered with my power door locks working. The hatch will also disengage if I am parked and just idling. This could be a major safety issue if I was in a vehicle crash....
