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.

Trunk pistons are too weak. Thinking the trunk lid was all the way up, I leaned in to the trunk on several occasions, only to bang my head on the trunk lid. It is my opinion that the trunk pistons are not raising the trunk high enough and injury to the head can occur.
