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.

Passenger door closes but not securely. Feels loose, but does not open unexpectedly.Fairly often the "door open" warning lights up even though the door is "closed." This is potentially a very unsafe situation. Fortunately no small kids in the family and not often are passengers in the back, But for others this could be an accident waiting to happen. A friend of mine bought a used Element at Car Max and it has the same problem so mine is nit an isolated case.
