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.

Problem: Rear passenger doors when driving in wet mud, slush freeze rear passenger doors shut in freezing weather... you can not get doors open from inside or out.... children or adults will be trapped inside rear passenger seat with really no way out... there is no rear cargo manual door release either... most adults could not get over seat front or rear seat to try and exit vehicle anyway.... this door freezing has happened to me (3) times when driving on wet slush or muddy roads in freezing weather......the rear doors take in these elements because of poor designed rear door seals... when I say frozen shut, I mean really frozen.... these elements also make it into the sides of the rear seats.... I will report this condition to GM Hummer but I believe I'll only get a run around.... I feel this could be a death trap for children or anyone... thank you for your time.... if you can please do something about this issue.....
