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.

Trunk lid will not stay up when opened. Dealer notified, and informedconsumer that the weight of the spoiler was the cause and nothing else was mention to correct the problem... consumer had the trunk lid hit her in back of head on four occasions. Can NHTSA help in this mater or provide additional information.
