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.

It is in the trunk. The off-white sealant use everywhere in the trunk visible. It is underneath the trunk carpet, underneath the rubber mat. I found the sealant got melted causing rubber to be melted. I believe when temperature in Texas reached 110 degree that's when it happened. Luckily I spotted before it could have caught fire. Dealer says body shop will have to look at the cause and god knows if they may have to cut the whole trunk from inside to fix it. Car is still in service for more than 7 days.
