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 bass of the speaker in the rear of the car is malfunctioning. I have heard from other owners of this year / make that this is an issue for them as well. Specifically, the speaker needs to be replaced or repaired because of the wobbly sound it makes

The trunk struts failed to support the trunk and slammed shut as I was retrieving groceries out of the trunk. It left a very nasty bump on the back of my head. It no longer supports the trunk lid weight at all. It is dangerous and I must always hold it open with one hand and the trunk is heavy. I have bumped my head and hands multiple times when the trunk comes down.
