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.

While stopped and in park the vehicle started rolling, I attempted to jump in the vehicle but could not pull myself all the way in. I was able to yank the keys from the ignition and then I could no longer run along side the vehicle and I fell on the asphalt. However, the vehicle continued rolling until it became high centered on a large rock. Four witnesses confirmed that the vehicle was in park and the keys were out of the ignition.

The right rear door sensor says that the door is open when it is not. Tried to close it a few times but that didn't work. Now I can't lock my car at night because my car alarm will go off thinking that someone is trying to break in. It has now happened approximately six or seven times now. I see that other people have reported the same issue. This should be a recall.
