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.

NHTSA — Equipment Adaptive Problems Notes: The 2009 is starting to have the same problems as previous model years, including the headlights blowing out due to bad connectors.

The wiring harness connections aren't a big deal to replace, as long as your dealer or mechanic doesn't charge you an arm & a leg to "diagnose" the problem.

While driving, the gas gage and mph needles dropped to zero and the car could not drive forward. There was also an "error" notice flashing on the dashboard. It lasted for a fraction of second but kept doing it about every 20-30 seconds. I realized the theft protection light stayed on after startng the vehicle but when I went out yesterday the theft protection light was not on after starting the car. It came on suddenly while driving and I was unable to get the gas gage to work. It is lasting longer now also. I also noticed the traction control words showed up on the dash board this last time. Conditions were clear and dry. I did read the manual and checked the fuse as recommended. The fuse looks fine and for one whole day after removing and replacing the fuse I did not have the problem but the next time I drove, it was much worse as I mentioned above.
