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.

Intermittently the vehicle hesitates when accelerating then catches up. This has been looked into numerous times and they tell me "no codes" appear so there isn't a problem. I can not duplicate this and do not know when it is going to happen. It is frightful when it happens on the expressway.

The cruise speed control dashboard light does not correctly indicate when the controller is controlling the vehicle speed. It is always lit when the control is activated rather than just when the control is engaged and controlling speed. I complained to a dealer service manager who stated the problem cannot be corrected.
