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.

The fuel gauge indicator is inaccurate. After the vehicle was completely fuel up, it only indicate 3/4 of a tank on the fuel gauge indicator. Up on subsequent restart of vehicle (2 time), the fuel level indicator finally read full.

The gas gauge is displaying inaccurate info. Even if I fill it to the top, it still displays either empty or half full. This is a safety issue.

: the contact stated while traveling various speeds, the airbag warning light remained illuminated after an occupant who weighed 115 pounds sat in the seat. The front passenger air bag would not deploy in the event of a crash when the air bag light was illuminated. On another occasion, an occupant who weighed 150 pounds sat in the passenger seat, and the air bag light remained illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who performed a diagnostic, and did not provide any error codes. The dealer and contact encountered a NHTSA recall #04V103000, regarding the air bags: Frontal: Sensor/control module. The dealer determined the vehicle was not involved in the recall due to the VIN. Also, the fuel gauge on the instrument panel, did not display the correct amount of fuel in the fuel tank. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who replaced the fuel tank, fuel pump, but the problem recurred. The manufacturer was not contacted.

Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
While applying the accelerator pedal, the vehicle failed to accelerate. Within seconds of parking the vehicle a fire occurred. The vehicle displayed a dangerously slow acceleration as if the transmission was in the wrong gear when trying to accelerate the vehicle. There was also poor fuel economy (11.6 to 12.1 mpg instead of the normal 19-26 mpg). Also, within the first few weeks of ownership, the power sliding door on the right side opened independently on two occasions and failed to open or close on several occasions, there were problems with the control buttons, the radio text display on the dash read malfunction multiple times and sometimes it occured when the engine was started. There was a problem with the catalytic converter.
