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 driving 2 mph, the rear left door open on it's own. The driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle and pulled over. The cause has not been determined at this time. Consumer will contact the dealer in the near future.

My door latch and/or 'door ajar' light latch is not working, my interior lights stay on all the time and my battery stays run down(I've had to replace it once already), and not only is it hard to drive at night with the interior lights on, it is dangerous. Please get back to me on this. Thank you, Ms. K. frame.
