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.

Battery went dead for no reason. Parked car about 1pm; upon attempting to drive vehicle about 5pm found I could not open door with my remote. Inserted key in door and unable to turn to unlock. Had a co-worker try and he could not turn. Had a third person try and after turning very hard, he was able to unlock door. Upon opening door, interior lights did not go on as they normally do. Tried to start car in normal way - nothing. Put key fab into ignition - nothing. Determined that battery dead. After jumping vehicle, it started and ran fine. Determined that nothing was left on other than the fan for the air conditioning. Now carry jumper cables and conscious to park where car can be jumped if necessary.

While driving at around 30 miles per hour a loud noise coming from under the dashboard gps screen was very noticeable and at the same time the screen went black for about 45 seconds then it came up alive again.

Car battery died suddenly with no lights or anything else left on. It happened twice and was exactly same. Both cases I was stranded with no other options to tow the car and need to take taxi to get my family home, I was lucky to have access to taxi. Dealers were unable to locate and fix the fault in both cases and give me lame excuse something was left on. For me it's serious safety issue as I can't afford to take my family in this car with no confidence that when would it die again. My family was stranded once outside in 100F heat and I don't want this to happen again. Either they identify the issue and fix it or take the car back and replace it with similar car. Regards
