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.

Since my liftgate doesn't like to unlock my only other option to get in to the rear is to use the rear glass. The struts stopped holding the glass open and I got hit in the head really hard by the glass. Now If I want to get into the rear I have to have one hand free to hold the glass open. I have been unable to locate replacement struts for the glass and can only find them for the liftgate (those need to be replaced also).
