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.

(1) normal usage (2) the passenger sliding door does not latch and remains open. Even after closing by hand. A side effect is that it does not open when the close button is pressed. (3) to fix right now - I have to stop the van, get out, and close a couple of times by hand. Each time you have to check to make sure it stays closed. Now I am paying $320 to have the dealer put in a new latch and electronic switch. The dealer, jolly john, had two of these same failures today! a sevice desk person mentioned he had a similar failure. Seems like a common problem. This is not a cold problem, as our van is in a heated garage and it occurs anytime since October.
