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 changed the Battery from a reading the car was giving me as that of having a bad battery in the vehicle. This was not the problem. The car would not start with a new battery installed! Changed the Radio Theft codes and the car would not start. Instruments would show an on-and-off status. Rear Hatch popped open, and the car would not start. I had the car towed to an electrical shop to check it and they charged me $314.00 to change a sensor. Car started in the shop but would not start the following day. Driver Side Headlight Motor began to grind. Changed the motor and the car would not start. Yesterday, it Began to show Serious electrical problems and Shut Down. Shows a dim Security light. All else is off when I turn the ignition key to on or ACC. The car has Shut Down. Looking for a Dealer to have it towed too...and found this site.
