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.

Rolled down left passenger window and would not come up. Went to repair shop and was told they would have to take off whole door and then replace motor and another component that would range between 300-400. I cannot believe I bought an american car from a well known company and have been sold a horrible car that is falling apart. The car also pulls funny and runs funny when going up hills and sometimes almost feels like it is going to stop when I first start it in the morning.
