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.

I've had numerous problems with this car from time of purchase. I have 9 pages that lists the defects of this. I would never recommend anyone buy this car. I didn't list the electrical problems I've had from rear lights not working, dome light fell off, blinker stopped working. Windows making a crackling noise when rolling up or down, and doors jamming for no reason. I didn't want problems with my vehicle that is why I purchased a new one, but I still have major defects! the issue with the engine taking a while to finally start, has never been fixed.
