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.

Constant moisture in headlights, this causes limited visability. The passenger side mirror flew out while vehicle was in motion, this could have caused accident or injury to person in passenger seat. Both power windows have failed twice, regulator has been replaced on drivers side, passenger side has been tightened and they are both broke again. Drivers side mirror is loose could fly out. Door panels are loose they have never been fixed. Fog light and tail light have both burned out already. Door lock cover popped out causing wires to be exposed. Drivers side was loose had it fixed. Cigerette lighter never worked. We are trying to determine if all of these things are related to an electrical problem in the car. Manufacturer contacted nothing has been done as of yet. This is very frusturating
