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 rear hatch is difficult to open, I have to push hard inward on the door as I pull the latch, then pull it open. It's a minimum two hand operation. Then some days it just won't close again, I have to slam it as hard as I can 5-10 times to get it to stay closed. A few times is has flown open as I was driving down the road! Once I was going up a steep hill and I nearly lost all of my cargo! There was a period last winter when the door just wouldn't open for over 2 months. My girlfriend can't get the door opened or closed. I hate this truck, see my other complaints.
