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. Notes: With the 2007 model year we finally get to bid adieu to a car famous for poor safety marks, a dangerously defective ignition and power steering that would work … sometimes.

Ever since I purchased this vehicle in October I've been having trouble & its only January I've had a fuel leak and had to replace it I've had bad struts had to replace it bad alternator replaced it bad battery replaced it bad brakes & rotors & I replaced it. It's just a horrible car and I wish I had spent my money else where is it possible that I trade in this car for something the same value I am very unsatisfied with this car.
