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.

Purchased used-when the weather is cold the doors will not shut-appears to be some type of electronic problem-even when car is warmed up the doors will not latch shut.

1.)every winter the locking mechanism on the drivers side door will freeze. So, once you open your door & you go to shut it, it will not latch shut, instead it will just bounce back open. After spending about 1/2 hour each time of manually moving the latch up & down it finally engages. 2.) power window buttons do not work on any window except drivers side. When I have it repaired, & if I put the window locks on, after that none will work again. I'm tired of fixing an ongoing problem! 3.) driver side power door lock is intermittent in working. It must be pressed approximately 5-6 times usually before it will engage.
