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.

1. the screws that hold the door lock assembly simply fell out of the door 2. passenger front door only opens when it wants, lock sticks 3. body part screws have fallen off of the car causing body parts to fall off while driving. 4. screws holding front bumper on fell out and bumper fell off. 5. trunk lock simply turns in circular motion when trying to open with a key 6. passenger front door sometimes will not stay closed due to lock assembly not functioning properly 7. car will not go into 4th gear without warming up, yet all systems check ok when tested at mechanic shops. No one will do anything about it because I bought it used form a dealer. They say the warranty expired and there is nothing they can do.
