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.

Vehicle was towed three different occasions due to the check engine light illuminating. The dealer has not been able to permanently correct the problem. They replaced the conductor plate, 2 rings on the connector, trans pan and valve body. The passenger side door never closed properly the first time. It had to be slammed to ensure it was closed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The consumer was told it was fixed, however it was not. The seat belts don't seem to provide much protection as they are loose and slip off the consumer's shoulder while driving. (nar)
