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.

Rear power window assembly systems simultaneously failed. Upon attempting the use of my rear windows, they did not respond to the center console commands. There are no door controls, so I assumed perhaps they had become stuck. Attempted to move the windows down with my hands, they came down with little resistance. The problem is, they couldn't go back up. The interior assembly was shot so the windows had nothing stopping them from sliding down, so after a while of driving or just sitting, the windows will slide down on you. Making the car an easy target for theft or exposing it to the elements. The solution I came up with was wedging cardboard in between the window and the door to hold the window in place.
