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.

My town has had an unusual amount of rain lately but despite that this was the first day I noticed a significant amount of water in my trunk. I had my backpack in the trunk with my laptop, which wasn't ruined thankfully, and the carpet was very damp as was my backpack. I did not see any water in the spare tire well nor did I see any water damage on the stiff board under the carpet. I did notice some cracks in my weather sealing but it wasn't obvious where the water was coming through (likely in the middle since that's where my backpack was laying). This is a big inconvenience for me since I take my backpack with me daily and it's not safe to leave it in the cabin. I have read similar complaints on forums but the source of the leak is unfortunately quite varied.
