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.

Without warning one day the car started smoking then caught on fire right while I was driving on the hwy. I quickly jumped out on the hwy almost into traffic trying to get away from the SUV thet within seconds quickly engulfed into flames. I could have been killed. The dealership made no mention about the defects or repairs. I would like to file a complain/lawsuit to seek a full refund along with damages, pain and suffering.

Turned car on and feels like the engine is stuttering need to make trip to dealer. Suspension noise coming from the front. Truck has been taken to the dealer numerous times on the suspension issue. The first time they said they lubed the bushings and every other time they say there is nothing wrong with it. This truck is a safety hazard for my family.

I could not set the cruise control without hitting the steering wheel. Once I got the cruise control set to 75 mph I could not get it to turn off. I hit the brakes 5 times before it would decelerate. Once the cruise control turned off there was a sudden hard shift on the engine and a loud knocking sound.
