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 side trimming near the roof racks are cracked, the gaskets near the rear of the roof racks are coming apart, and the trimming on both sides of the vehicle near the windshield are coming off and faded. The best way for me to describe what is going on with my vehicle is by presenting some forums that I read about.............."T=796"T=20479 apparently, I am no the only one who is having issues with this. Not only is this issue costly, but situations like this should not be of the customers fault when the vehicle has been taken care of as it should. Especially if it is only 4 years old. Molding should not come off a vehicle in this manner as it could eventually come off and damage someone else's property as debris while driving.
