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.

Passenger power window will not lock out. Only the back window lock. My dog hit the window button and the window opened and the dog almost jumped out on the highway.

If I open the driver side door while the vehicle is on, a warning light "check bsd system" is displayed on the info display. The warning stays on until the vehicle is turned off and turned back on. It shuts down the driver assistance feature on the vehicle. I've taken it into the dealership twice and they are unable to tell me why this is happening and have not been able to fix the problem. The service write up person asked was the vehicle in an accident, but I just purchased this vehicle new and it was only driven by the finance manager prior to me.

TPMS indicators continue to say there is an issue and the tire and tire pressure but the car shows the correct tire pressure and there is no damage to the tires.
