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.

problem #2

I was driving on the freeway going 70mph when I heard a loud pop and out of no where my sunroof had flown off and took the sliding door with it. There was a car behind me but luckily far enough back to swerve out of the way just in time. I checked to see what may have caused it and I saw that, what I am assuming is the glue holding it on to the sunroof mechanism, was somewhat rusted. I don't know a lot about cars but I know that after only 8 years and mild use, a sunroof should not fly off with no cause. It ripped off cleanly and left no shards

Every time I went through a puddle, the parking brake/brake fluid light and the charging system warning light would come on. It also lost power steering while this happened. It lasted few moments. This happened with every puddle and even on the freeway when water splashed underneath!!
