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.

The car operates on a keyless ignition, and uses push button start. The issue is, once the car is running, it will stay running without the computer fab key in the car. This is a safety hazard, I can leave the door open and walk out of the car with the key in hand and it stays running, a child or someone can get in the car and shift the gear lever causing serious injury. Also there was no warning when I left the car with the computer key in my pocket and no flashing of lights or blinking or horn noise. This is a violation of the NHTSA laws that no vehicle should be running once the key has left the car. Well this vehicle continues to run without the key in the car, this is very dangerous. The vehicle should shut off after the key has left the car. This push button start is cheap and can cause serious injury. The car should shutoff without the key in the car. I left the car with the door open and key in my pocket, the car failed to shut off because the push button has to be pressed to shut off. The car is suppose to shut off without the key in the car per NHTSA rules and regulations
