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.

The automatic locks do not work on all the doors. I've had these locks worked on, but they continue to not work. This is a safety issue, as the doors will not open at all. The driver's side rear door will not open when you try the auto-locks, and the lock cannot be manually pulled up, thus leaving the rear-seated occupant trapped in the car. This often times with the front passenger as well. It also happens with the rear hatch.
