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.

Interior door handle has metallic tape coating. Tape is peeling off. 2 of my children were cut by the metal. Kids cannot open interior passenger door without being injured. They are now scared, and may be reluctant to open door in an emergency.

The chrome finish on the door handles from the inside, this chrome finish is a think later of material almost like flex metal - it's very sharp and easily creates cuts in hand when opening the car doors. Approx 3 days ago, I was moving my hand as I was driving and my finger touched the pealing chrome finish creating a deep cut causing pain and bleeding. I have kids and they may get hurt by this.
