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 just bought this SUV hopping it would be better than my little Saturn I had and more trusting. But so far it has proven not safe to put children or baby's in. The seat belts either don't iach or don't unlatch. I just had to replace my evap at 111,687 miles. I seen that other people have had the same problem and it has not yet been a recall at all. And the engine makes a chugging sound when in park while running. It sounds like it wants to die and not stay running. I notice that when I was at a gas station. I will not put any of my children or my family's children in this SUV because of the problem I am having. It's a safty hazard that needs to be taken to consideration. I hope this gets looked more into before someone dies or a childs life is taken.
