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.

This is the second time in two years the battery has died on this car. The first time was August 2014, just one month past the car one year mark. The second, that is why I am writing this complaint, is almost one year to the day of the last battery failure. While the first may be written off as a bad battery, I do not believe in coincidences and feel there is an electrical problem with this car. I have seen other complaints on-line so I think there is something more to this problem than just bad batteries...updated 09/03/15 updated 12/4/2015
