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.

A problem with the lift gate door sensor as In the past - re-closing it has helped. Now it won't go off. The Dome light will stay on all night because of this. Why in the hell would they make the dome light stay on indefinitely? I cannot find a cable for disconnecting this sensor.
