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.

One month after purchasing the vehicle I had it back at the dealer for seatbelt not retracting properly. The buttons keep breaking off. Had the rear defroster replaced, the A/C had to be fixed, the brakes and rotors replaced, turn signal switch had to be replaced. The gas gauge currently is not working. There has been so many repairs on this vehicle I can't keep track any more. Continue to have a problem with the car shaking when I have been driving it for a while. Dealer acknowledges there is a problem but has no idea what is causing it. This car is my worst nightmare. I have been to the dealer so many times I lost count.
