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.

Since purchasing nearly 2 yrs ago from a local dealership, it has had numerous minor issues and some dangerous problems as well. My main concern is that the drivers side automatic sliding door doesn't function properly. We had the van looked at by a mechanic from the dealership and he was unable to remedy the problems with the door. The slider door opens randomly, won't shut, or just keeps opening and shutting for no particular reason. We've tried turning the switch off on the console, which for the most part keeps the door shut~ but then that door is unusable. Now for the most serious of my concerns with the console switch off, the door has on occasion opened on its own when the van is going down the road. Also, at least 3 times in the last 6 months, the door has opened on its own in the night and stayed open~ causing my battery to be dead in the morning. Another problem we have has is the ABS and the traction control lights come on randomly, we had the van serviced and still it doesn't seem like those systems are working properly.
