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.

Interior door handle won't open door. This is because the cable end slips out of the door latch mechanism with use. About every 6 months to a year, have to disassemble door and reseat cable. This seems to be a design issue, as discussion boards see this complaint a lot. Cheaper to reseat than buy new latch/lock mechanism, which would have same design flaw.
