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.

I was sitting in the car reading, when I pressed the door unlock button on the armrest the door wouldn't unlock. The only way the door could be unlocked was to use the remote key. If a child were locked in the car on a hot day the child wouldn't be able to get out of the car.this car was manufactured in Kentucky.

If vehicle is locked from outside and someone is still inside, the locks will not let the person on the inside to get out. Door has to be opened with key from the outside. Dealer says that's normal.
