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.

When driving with the headlights on they will randomly turn off for a bit then turn on again, but sometimes this requires trying to turn the headlights off then on again. Very dangerous when trying to drive at night. Brought vehicle to dealership where a check was run on it, they were unable to find the problem. I am unable to drive at night until the problem can be discovered.

Headlight was intermittently going on and off. Would work for the first several minutes after turning it on for the first time in a day, but seemed to go out after it was warmed up. Went to change the bulb and discovered that the plug that the headlight bulb plugged in to was partially melted and brown, as if it had overheated or caught on fire briefly. Dealership replaced the headlight assembly under warranty. Notes from dealership below: Complaint C/S pass headlight is out and the outlet is burt check and advise cause found internal connector to bulb burnt/melted. Has original headlight bulb. Inspected for broken wires- found none correction jco headlight assy, under warranty

I had an emergency and tried at night to unlock electric doors for my passengers and I. upon attempting to manage the emergency and unlock the door for my passengers to exit the vehicle, I was greatly delayed because the "unlock light is non functioning" and can't be seen in the dark. This is a safety problem & I believe it warrants a recall because the dealer refuses to acknowledge it as a problem that needs correcting. Thanks god there was no fire! please advise and assist, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
