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.

When I signed the paperwork I noticed the interior dome light wasn't working and pointed this out to the dealer. The dealer said it was just a loose fuse and he'd have it fixed when I took possesion later that day. When I picked it up several hours later the int dome light was working. I had no problems until 5 days later when the keyless entry remote seemed to stop working. Once I got home I checked the spare and it still wasn't working. That evening I discovered the interior and exterior lights were not working. As this is the second time (the dome lights failed twice) they only have one chance to get it right or I will demand some major compensation. I will post the results later.
