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.

I bought this car for 6 months, the engine light on twice, didn't fix it first time, the advisor said the gas tank cap is not close tight enought. Couple of days later, the engine light is one again, this time they found control system incorrect flow, small leak, hose off of purge valve at air cleaner housing. Car pulls to left on highway and right on local street. Brought in 4 time, admit alignment on the 3rd time and fix it, but still pull. Brought in again the fourth time, said found no pulling problem. We complaint that the car occasionally jerk when press gas paddle, the jerk feeling simliar to the way the car got hit in behind. They found no code for it. The car beep, they can't find any code for it. There are many problem we found in the car, but they said they can't find the code. One advisor think that the car's pulling because the car is too high. Also, it happen 3 times since I bought the car that after I placed the gear to reverse, then place it back to drive, the car won't go but the engine run. To fix it, then I place the gear back to park and to drive, then the car back to normal run. I'm very regretful to have bought this car. It has so many problem and the dealear doesn't seem to want to fix the problem either. I'm, the consumer have to paid financially, and mentally for this car. It is a disaster.
