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. Notes: The 2013 has a growing number of transmission complaints at low mileage. The issue is part of a class-action lawsuit that says the transmissions shake violently during acceleration between 15mph and 30mph.

problem #1

  • 1,200 miles
Any items on the floor of the center/back seating section can shift when the brakes are applied. The items can travel under the drivers seat and wedge under the brake or gas pedal. There is nothing under the drivers seat to prevent items from reaching the drivers foot area. On one occasion a water bottle wedged under the gas pedal while entering a 70 mile per hour highway. The bottle had traveled under the seat when the car was going around the curved onramp. Luckily, I was able to pull safely to the side of the road. This has happened more than once, and I try to keep the kids from putting stuff on the floor.
