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.

While getting on the freeway about to merge on the middle left lane my vehicle all the sudden flick on all the dashboards lights - did not loose any power, but got my very concerned. 3 days later 3/14/2015 while I was putting to a parking space about to make another left turn the steering lock and lost all power. Lights were on, but I had no breaks and no steering. When tried to start the vehicle the engine had a hard time starting. Per the recalled online it says to adjust seat and not to have any other keys with the vehicle key. There were no other keys on this. I called my local dealer and there was no information on this.
