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.

Both passenger/driver side rear manual popped out. Windows do not close properly, and can be opened from the outside in the locked position. A person can wedge a hand between the glass and weather seal in the locked position. Protrudes appx 3/4 inches out of alignment from fixed automatic rear window. Dealship stated that no adjustment could be made, and thats its normal on this model.
