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.

The moon roof does not always close. All the way. At times it will go to a point where it just goes back and forth. It happened about 4 times prior to me bringing the car in for repair. I was told that it may need a need motor. When I picked up the car I was told it just needed an adjustment and to bring it in again if the problem recurs. It occurred twice the next day. I called for an appointment and was told that unless the roof currently was not closing they can do nothing about it. Since that time there was only one other time the roof would not close and it took numerous times before it eventually closed properly.
