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.

Factory paint peeling. Started on hood and door jambs, now on roof. I cannot believe a government Agency would allow paint to peel and contaminate in the environment.

Vehicle was traveling at 70 mph when consumer lost control and vehicle rolled over. Roof above driver and passenger seats totally collapsed. Roof over second row and third row seats remained intact. Consumer felt that driver and passenger side roof should not have collapsed. There were two deaths.
