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 contact stated the vehicle's airbag light illuminated while driving 30 mph. Also, the seat memory lock that sets the preferred seating position of the front driver side failed. The memory lock was located on the front driver side door. On 08/22/06, the vehicle was taken to the dealer who determined that both problems were manufacturer defects. The manufacturer was contacted and expressed that a solution was not available.
