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.

My passlock system keeps on acting up. I can't say anything about the design of it, but I will say that the implementation is absolutely horrid and should be recalled.

Upon receiving a recall letter and taking the vehicle to dealer for recall repairs consumer stated that the vehicle was in very good condition until she took it to dealer. However, the dealer claimed the vehicle needed an ignition switch and chip. Also, consumer was told that the problem was the security system.
