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.

Vehicle locks automatically, without warning. The van has locked automatically both when the ignition was on, and when it was off. Also, when using the key to manually open the doors, it is difficult to get the doors open on the first try. This is on on-going problem. This is a dangerous condition, especially when one considers that the sale of minivans are primarily targeted to drivers with children.

The remote keyless entry system fails to keep the car locked or unlocked, the consumer must not use the key to unlock the door because it will disable the remote keyless entry system, the locks lock and inlock randomly while driving or parked.

The vehicle locks the door automatically with no reason. This can happen even when the vehicle's engine is running. Also, if unlocking the vehicle by the remote keyless entry, the driver door will open. Upon pressing the "unlock" botton again to unlock all doors, all door will unlock and immediately all, including the driver's door will lock. Twice I had my car locked up on me while running in my garage. I am a proud father of a new infant. While trying to put the baby in the vehicle, what can I do if the doors lock on their own again? it will be a danger to my child's safety. Also, if you try to unlock the car with the unlock (electrical) botton, it sometime will not let you do so by automatically locking the car. This is a safety issue if we need to exit the vehicle in an emergency. Please review and advise.
