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.

Problems encountered: Rear windows not working, had motors replaced worked for about 6 months then intermittent then quit working within 6 months. ABS and brake light on dash goes on and off. A/C stops blowing for about 20 seconds then resumes blowing. Keyless entry works sometimes, sometimes it don't. speedometer slower than it reads and mileage may not be correct. Windshield wipers not working properly. Intermittent settings on wipers quit working and when you turn off wipers they stop in middle of windshield. I have an 88 year old father with no legs and this is the vehicle I have to drive him around in. Do not feel safe!!

The door does not bounce back. My 2 year old daughter and myself got caught in the door while it was trying to close. My five year old had to push the button. I took the car to the manufacturer and they tested the door and said it was working fine. They said that is how the car is made. You have to have to put a lot force on the door in order for it to bounce back. There is no way to adjust the censors. There 2003 van requires even more pressure than mine. How is a 2 year old child suppose to apply a lot of pressure.

Consumer states that the power sliding door does not have a sensor to stop them from closing quickly causing passengers entering vehicle to be crushed. Consumer took vehicle to dealer to have door close manually. Dealer states to see owners manual, and oiled tracks, but problem still exist. Consumer found owners manual does not instruct on how to manually operate door.
