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.

Haleigh is my 3 year old daughter, and we bought this car on 5/31, we had people at our house on 6/1 for a party so kids were in and out all day. Haleigh went in my car being curious, the doors all shut, and she could not open the doors because all 4 door handles are solid metal and were so hot that they burned her hand and she could not get out. When I found her she was almost passed out from the 125 degrees that it was in the car, and had to go to the emergency room. No life threatening injuries occurred, but could have easily since she could not get out of the car. I have also burned my hand on the door handles multiple times since then because they are solid metal. This needs to be changed, before a child gets serious injuries!!!!
