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 consumer complained about a problem with driver's side door handle. Upon pulling open the door handle it broke off. The vehicle has not been taken to an auto shop for repair. The handle was made of poor quality plastic that was very fragile. This was the first and only incident with the door handle. No repairs or corrections have been made.
