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.

For a car with plastic it wouldn't be a problem but i got bubbles forming on the rear right wheel well area and it's starting to break apart in some areas. Also the undercarriage is rusting out. The only way to prevent this or stop this is to first don't let snow or salt stick to the bottom and if you got a garage keep the car in there. There are some youtube videos on removing rust but it's difficult to say how bad it is or whether the problem is fixable on this particular car. It's a good idea to get it fixed and even rust proof it with some rustoleum paint, but these cars are notorious for rusting.
