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 dash is cracking and caving in. Radio isn't working now due to cut or burnt wires. The passenger side airbag could deploy at any sec with all the cracks and pieces fallen.

I was struck by lightening through the antenna while driving. I am having some medical problems and have yet to see doctor. I was tingled by theligtening, and sore from head to foot. Is not a vehicle suppose to have arresters to prevent this from happening?

When heater is on dashboard would become very hot. Took vehicle to dealership, and was informed by mechanic that problem was with radio, which was defective. It was replaced. Dashboard problem reappeared again. Kept taking vehicle back to dealership for dashboard problem, and again radio was replaced. Nothing else was checked for cause of overheating dashboard.
