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.

I bought this vehicle for my daughter. I have been driving it for about five months when all hell broke lose. AC quit working, cluster quit working, no power going on the highway, shakes very bad, back axle squeals, windows won't roll down and now it caught fire, luckily I was outside and I have a little mechanic knowledge so I put it out immediately . My husband replaced the cluster, did a complete tune up, fixed the window motors, put a new computer. . we spent over $2000 and still nothing and then it caught on fire. I am sure there is more to come.
