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.

Problem 1: date in: 5/22/07date out: 5/23/07 problem: Brakes or transmission locked up; I had to have the vehicle towed to the dealership. Problem 2: date in: 6/22/07date out: 6/22/07 problem:brakes or transmission locking up. The way that the dealership handled this issue is by disengaging the hill holder function. Additionally, the driver's side frontal airbag did not deploy during a front-end collision; yet the impact of the collision was serious enough to cause $9,200 worth of damages. Furthermore, one week prior to the accident, the passenger airbag detection light was not indicating initiation when there was a passenger, using the seatbelt, in the passenger seat. We had planned on taking the car in to have passenger airbag system assessed. I sent a request to the flatiron imports on 12/5/07, requesting that the entire airbag system be assessed for proper functioning while it is being serviced for the mechanical damages caused by the accident; however, I have not received a confirmation of this request as of 12/12/07.
