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.

Vehicle has a push button to close trunk (hatch). The hatch is supposed to have a safety mechanism to prevent items from being crushed on closing. A piece of luggage was between the latch and the top of the hatch and, on closing, became wedged to the point that the only way to open the hatch was to cut through the car from the inside (rear seats fall down) to access the latch mechanism. If a the hatch does not automatically retract with a luggage strap (what else does one must often put in the trunk of a car other than luggage), seems likely that the hand of a small child could likewise be crushed by the automatic latching mechanism.
