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.

Chunks of rubber are falling out from the center of the tire. Door locks and radio don't always work properly. Windshield wipers stopped working. I stopped and shut the car off. The wipers started working again.

A prart is missing from rear door security lock. There is no lever to engage locks, only a hole in the steal. Service department at the dealer said to use a key to manipulate the lock which would damage the key or internal parts.
