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.

I had the car for seven days when it happened. I went to enter the driver side door, when I pulled the handle, it came off in my hand!! The other part of the door handle where the key lock is flew off on the concrete. I could not believe it happened! I was able to slide the pieces back on and the handle remained functional, but how often do you hear of this problem!!!
