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.

L25 recall for fobik and win safety issues. We have never been able to get this fixed and the parts were on back order all this time. Now they have issued R03, which is essentially L25 all over again. And they closed out all the L25 so it looks like that was completed! this appears to be subterfuge and they are not taking care of the problem and leaving owners and passengers unsafe. They do not have the parts available, have not had the parts available and are trying to hide that behind a new recall. This is just plain wrong and dangerous! we had one of our fobik's begin to make all kinds of things happen in our van and we had to dismantle it 3 years ago. It was opening doors and setting off the alarm from inside the house at night. Who knows what it would have done in motion.
