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.

This is a horrible problem, I found that not locking the doors

causes this to stop, but don't like leaving doors unlocked in the city!!!! I really don't want to put any more money into this vehicle. Any ideas? A wire to cut? HELP!!!!

It's the middle of the night, I'm all snuggled up in my bed.. and then.. beep beep beep.. my car alarm goes off!!! This has happened to me well over 10 times. The alarm just randomly goes off for no reason! I have taken it in to be fix, but they can't seem to find a solution. Anyone have a suggestion?
