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.

When using turn signal to go left or right signal will go out before turn is made. Took to dealer and had it repaired, but problem still exists. The turn signal was repaired twice, but the problem still exists. The exhaust makes humming sound when at idle. Wiper blade failed and was replaced. The vehicle gets low mileage when A/C on, the engine was leaking oil.
