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.

You can lock the car with the door lock and then minutes or hours later go to unlock it with the remote and it won't unlock. you have to put the key in. Its really annoying when I'm on the passenger side attempting to get my daughter in the car and I have to take her all the way to the driver side and unlock the car.

the power locks don't work worth a bean. the sliding door on the drivers side won't unlock half the time and when it does you have to work on it just to get it to unlock, and the drivers side lock won't work and when you start going the passenger side door won't lock when they are supposed to lock automatically. What a piece!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
