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.

The right rear door sensor says that the door is open when it is not. Used to be able to try to closing it a few times but that no longer works. Now I cannot lock my car because my car alarm keeps going off thinking that someone is trying to open the door. When I called the dealership about it, they said "I know exactly what you are talking about". I received an estimate of approximately $300 to get it fixed - even though there is really nothing wrong at all - the door is closed. It has now happened approximately three times with the right front door. This should be a recall.
