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.

One day the interior door handles just began snapping off when we were exiting the car. There is no way to fix them without a costly visit to the dealer and further, there is no way to get out of the car without opening the window from the inside, reaching outside to open the door with the exterior handle, closing the window and exiting. This has also caused the windows to fall off the tracks, so this is a real mess, but with 100,000 miles, who wants to spend so much to repair it?
