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.

At first the trunk wouldn't shut every time. You had to hold your tongue right and cross your toes and hope it would shut. Then one day it shut ok, got to destination, and lid wouldn't open. Have looked at it from the inside by lowering the back seat and problem seems to be the cable, but haven't been able to fix yet. So not sure. With 3 kids and all their stuff, it really sucks not having easy access to the trunk.
