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.

The front drivers side door won't open/unlock. The mechanic said it's the door latch mechanism but I'm having trouble actually finding one that affordable.. I have to climb in through the passenger side door or climb through the window which is a major pain in the ass... I have bruises all over me from hitting the console or seat belt latches wrong.. I really need this fixed ASAP
