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.

Leaky trunk and back seat.

problem #3

  • 68,148 miles
The seal around the trunk lid is leaking. There was a large puddle in my trunk from rain water, it leaked underneath into the spare tire holding area, then into the back seats and carpet in the car. The water could not be completely removed, and there is mold in the car now. Mold is a health hazard. The seal is faulty.

The seal around the trunk of the vehicle leaked, creating a molding smell around the trunk and rear seating of the vehicle. Also, the buckle of the seat belt was defective. The latch will not stay in the buckle. The consumer was told that the seat belt was not under warranty, and wanted the consumer to pay for the seat belt to be repaired. (the buckle had come out of the inner seat) the consumer felt that the damage was due to water and mold damage.
