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 door locks are all ativated together. You can not unlock the drivers door without all four doors and the back gate being unlocked. I do not know of any car that a single door can not be unlocked without opening all the doors. I feel this is a very serious safety proble. My wife can not go to the mall and exit or enter her truck without the possiblity of someone enterning her truck using a door that she did not won, T to unlock. There will be injury and possible death involved with this factory defect. Please address this complaint post-haste. Thanks; charles walsingham.
