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.

Dt the passengers rear door handle broke off the vehicle and the driver's side rear door handle was stuck. Had to get out and open the door in order to get the rear driver side door open. Now, on the driver's side rear the handle has broke off. Started noticing the problem with the door latches on July 31, 2005. Contacted the dealer and the manufacturer, and they said it would be over $300 to have them fixed.
