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.

Your form would not allow me to correctly fill out the information for my problems. The car can be off or running at any speed for me to have lock problems. I first noticed the problems shortly after I bought the car and they have continued for over two years in spite of the dealer having repeatedly tried to fix the problems. All my door and rear hatch locks have failed hundreds of times in spite of my returning the car to the dealership many times. The hatch can pop open if I merely close another door. It can pop open if I am driving down the road. Frequently when I am driving the locks will pop back open if I try to lock them.the locks fail many times when the car is running in spite of my having taken the car to the dealership many times and the dealer having tried to fix it many times. The dealer does not appear capable of fixing the locks. Supposedly the rear hatch lock has been changed several times but it still pops open on its own.
