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.

Water pours in through the a pillars and where the garage opener is. This only happens in the winter months, when the temperature is really cold. This happened 2 or 3 times last winter (2006) and now it has happened 3 times in the last 4 days. The pattern is when the vehicle has snow on roof and it gets really cold then warms up a little the water pours in. The carpet is soaked. I can hear the ice moving around in the a pillars when this happens. The dealer can't simulate this. They put the vehicle in a room and run water over it. I think it has something to do with the water freezing inside and expanding then when it warms up it just pours inside the vehicle. The dealer checked the sunroof and said there was no problem. I think it could be the gaskets for the luggage rack could be cracked or loose, thus water getting in. I can't explain why it doesn't do it when it just rains.
