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.

Very annoyed at the number of problems this car has had.. First had a turn signal relay go out.. Fixed that... Then car would sometimes not start at all but all the lights would be on and running.. when I'd turn the key.. no sound at all.. I'd wait like 10 minutes and then it would start up.. no problem.. Checked battery.. fine. Another turn signal relay went out.. Fixed that.. Now both brake lights went out and took it in, it wasn't the fuse and now i got to go somewhere else because they don't know how to fix it.. Also it's nearly impossible to set my cruise control as it always cuts out.. Annoying!! Also misc. problems: Passenger side door will not open from outside.. inside door handle paneling came off on both driver and passenger side door... AnD I DO take very good care of this vehicle, there is no reason why this all should be happening..
