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.

The door locks quit working and then they jam. The inside handle breaks and the lock knob wont move up so your trapped inside so these no way to get out without climbing over the seats. If you were to cash and there was only one way out of the car it better not be the doors that have stopped working.
