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 contact stated that the horn would not work. The battery also failed. The vehicle had to be towed to the dealer and they installed a used battery. She fused and then they replaced it with a cheap battery that did not fit the vehicle. The tire on the passenger back side had no tread, and the vehicle would skid when going up hill. Updated 1/31/2007 - the rear defrost was inoperative. The dealer determined that the grid was bad and suspected a bad connection at the glass. The check engine light illuminated. The dealer determined that the vehicle had an leaking gas cap.

The contact stated the horn was not working. The service dealer replaced the horn, and reprogrammed the ccm to the latest calibration. Since the repair she had to press firmly, in the exact location of the horn symbols. Sometimes she has to press on both horn symbols to get the horn to work. The dealer said after time and use the horn should become easier to use. Another concern she had was with the vehicle speed control. While at a stop sign the vehicle accelerated on its own. The service dealer inspected the vehicle, but could not find the cause of the problem at this point. Updated 11/29/05.
