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.

problem #1

  • 2,000 miles
While driving, the warning lights on the dashboard suddenly illuminated, and the emergency brakes engaged within seconds. When this occurred the vehicle immediately went to a complete stop. The vehicle was flat bedded to the dealership, and indicated that this problem occurred because of a computer failure and the engineers are working on it. The vehicle has been at the dealership for 12 days, in which this failure has occurred 3 times whiles being test driven.
