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.

both rear windows will not go down and I have been told its not the motors in them, that it may be an electrical issue that will cost lots to fix!

Electric windows work when they want, or just go half way down. The drivers door window especially bad. This has been fixed at my expense, worked for about six months and started again.
