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.

Two issues: The rear doors retain water after a storm and need to be drained by hand by holding the rubber flap at the bottom of the door away from the door itself. The locks randomly do not fully unlock when you use the key remote, the unlock button on the door, or even manually pulling on the lock knob. The lock knobs jump up and down and you have to try to open the door handle at the perfect time to catch the lock open in order to open the door. This problem seems to rotate through all 4 locks for random intervals and with random selection. It always seems to be on at least 2 locks at any given time.
