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.

I have replaced the outside driver's side door handle five times and the passenger side twice The type of material used was poorly selected.

It cracks over the top of the lock cylinder at the upper corner every time thus relying on one fastener to hold it in place. In a short period of time the housings only bolt holding it in place loosens and eventually won't allow me to open the door.
