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 received this car as a gift from a Church - I'm the second owner - the interior light and alarm for the car do not work - reading the book for the car it states that once you remove the factory radio these features no longer work - I'm just curious who was the genius that thought of that. It's scary at night with no light comijng on and I am now going to have to pay for a separate alarm for my car because they are the hottest car stolen along with Accords and Camrys. Is there anything else that can be done - the person who donated the car donated a CD player to be installed for me and that's when the problem occurred. Thank you for time in this manner.
