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 #3

Sephia LS 1.8L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles


for a decent, economy car it is a shame this problem is with dashboards in almost every car of this make and model, it really throws you off, just by looking at it. it does not help in any way the reputation of a dependable car so far.
