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.

bottom of doors came off

All four trim on each door started falling off. They were flapping in the wind. If they unattached they could have possibly flew off and killed someone. Had no choice but to remove from each door the bottom of the trim.

It's bad when you start having mechanical problems with a car less than 90,000 miles, but when the body parts start to come apart that's awful! I mean the whole bottom half of both front doors literally fell off. I found out when I took it to a friend who does body work, that as he showed me, it was literally held on by two sided body tape that just dried out!

I'm wondering as the car (per car fax) was only a one owner before I got it and it only had less than 20,000 miles on it why this happened! Is the whole body held together by two sided tape? I'm almost afraid to drive it now, wondering if the back or the trunk or anything else might fly off! Also, what if I'd been on the hwy say going 70mph speed limit and they'd come flying off then they could have very well caused someone to wreck or even get killed! This is just wrong! You don't hold car parts on my two sided tape! Unless maybe its a model car! I mean the kind you get in a box at a toy store!!

Something needs to be done about this junk, it's just not right! We have enough problems with first the windows breaking, engine problems and now we have to worry about the body parts flying off!
