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.

Each door handle has broken off at least once, and two have broken off twice. Once it occured at a shopping mall where I was concerned about a man lurking nearby my car and couldn't get into the driver's side of the vehicle to protect myself.

My complaint is that the original black steel wheels on my vehicle have rusted. I am surprised that a vehicle will suffer rust on its wheels after so short a period of time. No I do not drive onto or near a beach. My car did not suffer sea water damage as a result of hurricane sandy. The black paint on my wheels is now a rusty brown. Is there any safety recall regarding these wheels? please contact me. Thankyou
