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.

NHTSA — Structure: Body: Roof And Pillars Problems Notes: The Pontiac Vibe is the mechanical twin of the Toyota Matrix.

Front passenger headliner leaked water onto seat and door arm rest after extended period of rain. Same problem had previously developed on drivers side, dripping on driver, which became a distraction while driving. This car has an electric sunroof. Drains were not visibly plugged or jammed.
