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 side moldings are the pieces that protect the body against other car doors. One day, driving down the highway, the driver side one just fell off. I inspected the passenger side one and found it was loose.

Took it to the dealer and they replaced them under warranty. Good thing I got the extended warranty, as the mileage was over the standard 36,000 mile warranty.
