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 hardtop will not go down on the one side - apparently the motors that bring down the hardtop can burn out, causing the issue. For higher-end car, this should not happen so soon. Dealer indicated this was a $3,000-plus repair. I have since been driving a SC430 coupe!
