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 hate this van. Granted, it still gets me where I need to go... but I am waiting for the day that becomes an issue as well. So many electrical problems. The gauges, the doors, the locks, the windows. Oddly my passenger side window did start working again this month. It hadn't been able to go up electronically for over a year, then the other day I happen to try again and it nudged up a tiny bit before quitting. It did that for a few weeks, then one day it went up with out a hitch and hasn't had a problem since then. As for the gauges, that's another story. The temperature gauge hasn't worked in a more than 4 years. The speedometer occasionally acts up and same with the rpms. The sliding doors are always wonky. One side will occasionally open while I'm driving. blah.. ok I'm done with my rant. Thank you!

Lucky I have my key chain button since the door buttons don't work for locking and unlocking.

It is a pain in the A**S, when your kids try to get out of the side doors and they do not open because the power locks only work when they want. My wife has to get out of the vehicle and manualy open the door.
