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 frame and underbody components have an excessive about rust on them. There appears to be a defect in the corrosion prevention coating that should have been applied. The rust is significant enough to be a major safety issue and is unacceptable for a vehicle that is 10 years old.
