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.

Well shortly after buying the car, the drivers side rear window fell down in the door. Then a couple days ago the other rear window fell also. I'm not sure what happened, but the window wasn't even being used at the time it fell. I don't know what part inside the door went bad, but I feel it should never have done that.

Began having trouble with both rear windows. The windows would intermittently become unresponsive to controls both at the driver seat and the controls on the doors. Brought the car in before the warranty expired (4 yrs, 8 mos) to get windows repaired, dealer could not duplicate the errors and did not do any service on the car. Six months later (after warranty expired), the rear, passenger side power window went completely down on its own (I had not touched window controls). While I was driving my car and would not go back up. Independent garage had to remove door panel and sever the controls in order to get the window up; then had to wedge the window with a block to keep it up until parts could be ordered. If any pets or children had been in the car when the window first went down, they could have easily gone out the window.

In less than 2 years I've had both rear passenger windows fall 4 times unexpectedly while driving. When taken to the dealership the window regulator was replaced all 4 times.
