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.

The brakes wear out & need to be replaced every 5 minutes it seems. If I could do one thing in this world as far as cars goes it would be to warn anyone who is thinking of buying this car. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, or else get ready to have your pockets drained, your patience gone, and a headaches for the duration of your ownership. I have maintained my car properly, but it was never enough. There is always a new problem. It leaks water, the seat is coming apart, the buttons break and crack on the controls, the brakes suck majorly, the signals don't work right, the sensors are spastic, the body is turning to dust, and that's just the tip. If you buy one of these lovely contraptions you also can look forward to the following. Headlights going out, lights going on and off for no reason, window motors burning out if you have power windows, cracks in the windshield, so many brake pads, rotors, i lost count. The latest thing is the rust. It is all along the bottom panels, and along the trunk hatch. Oh the trunk leaks like crazy. Don't put anything in there for to long. I still own this car, and I am trying to get rid of it, any takers? Hmm didn't think so.
