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.

The hydraulic lifts were held in place by a screw on both sides of the tailgate. The screw on the left side broke. As a result the tailgate released and slammed down very hard.

Rear hatch light keeps coming on and won't go off. When backing out after dark it is very unsafe to be driving. The dealer replaced the switch and the hatch lock light comes on, and the door doesn't seem like it is locked.
