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.

My wife had her coat caught in the door after she exited and the car began to move away. When the car is in drive, the door cannot be opened from the outside. She lost her balance and fell, losing her balance, broke her wrist. She could not open the door because it was locked automatically.. the car is a 2009 Saturn Aura. The manual says that automatic locking of doors is programmed and can't be changed. This is not safe!! she could have been thrown under the car.
