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.

NHTSA campaign #01V364000 addressed a problem with the brake lights on my vehicle. My vehicle received the service specified by the recall on 4-30-02. Now my vehicle has the condition (failure of the right and left brake lights but not the center brake light) which led to the recall. My position is that the failure is due to a known design flaw which was addressed in a recall. The recall repair did not remedy the problem as evidenced by the current failure. The dealers position is that they did the recall service and are no longer responsible.

NHTSA recall 01V364000/ manufacturer's recall 01073 for multifunction switch failure. Brakes lights have intermittently gone out. Brake lights did not illuminate to alert other drivers that vehicle was slowing down or stopping. For the multi switch the vehicle was taken in 3 times to dealer before recall was issued. Please add more information.

At 12,270 miles we had no brake lights taken to the dealer and he replaced the turn signal and said that was the problem. That was in June. On July 6, 2001 the dash board lights flashed several times lighting all of the guages showing that the engine was not running, but it was still running. Engine light stayed on. Took the vehicle to the dealer who found multiple trans dtc's internal failure replace ignition switch and performed relearn. I am concerned that this vehicle will have more defects, please let me know if others are having the same problem. Thank you.
