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.

On the same day sirius satellite shut down my free radio subscription I lost the ability to dial by voice command from the phone-book and received this verbal error message:"the requested contact is currently unavailable in the phone book". tried deleting the phone-book, then the phone and device, did a new re-pairing to the same result. Any incoming calls display the proper phone name and I can dial by giving the number, which is difficult when so many of my contacts have three numbers and it is illegal in my province (Canada) to hold a cell phone while driving and you must use bluetooth. This inability to dial from the phone-book adds more of a distraction as you have to try to come up with numbers instead of just saying a contact name. A google search turns this up to be a newer, common problem to which nobody has posted a definitive fix. Am going to have to take to the dealer and see if they can fix this issue.
