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.

Memory mirrors do not return to their position after coming from reverse. Consumer must adjust mirrors, while driving, to get the back to the proper position. Passenger side seat belt locks while braking. Consumer must unfasten the seat belt - while moving - recoil and then fasten seatbelt to release pressure. Transmission downshifts 15-30 seconds after coming to a complete stop in cold weather. Downshifts are hard (feeling like vehicle has been hit from behind) and long (time between gears).
