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.

Consumer would put key inside ignition and headlights would come on. However, vehicle would not start. Consumer stated that ignition wires were worn/weak. The dealership has been contacted. This problem occurred about 4-5 times. A few times the ignition was turned on with a little manipulation of the key. But the last 2 times the temperature was in the 90's and the vehicle could not be started at all. The consumer believes this failure is a safety concern.
