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.

There is a recall in 2005 for the rear doors, however, it's the drivers door that will not latch. As I'm typing this, I'm listening to my car "dinging" because the door will not shut. And the key is not in the ignition. Even if the car door is locked, the door will open.

I have already paid to replace the trunk latch because the trunk was stuck shut.
