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.

I have had several problems with this vehicle since I purchased it. Most problems have been directly related to wiring problems and electrical failure. The latest incidence I lost power on the highway and had no steering or brakes. The car was towed and the shop had to replace the ip cluster and the BCM which had both completely failed. This failure caused me to lose control of the vehicle at highway speeds leaving the road and eventually becoming buried in the median. If this incidence had occured at any other section of this main thoroughfare (I-40) me and my 5 yr old could have been severely hurt or killed.
