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.

We have experienced several problems with this vehicle, the major problems have included the muffler system being replaced, front crank and rear main seals leaking and being replaced, transmission being toally replaced at 57K and now our timing belt has snapped causing $4,000 in damage to the motor. Owner's manual states that timing belt does not need to be checked until 75K the vehicle only has 67K. We lost the transmission and the motor on I-20 in Louisiana going at a rate of 70mph, both times being left stranded on the interstate early in the am. Both incidents have put my family in danger and I honestly believe that if either had occurred later in the day it would have resulted in an accident.
