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 drain tubes in the car does not work so, rain and snow will make the car fill with water. If the car is full of water the computer in the car doesn't read causing the car to fail which happened to me on the freeway. I could have been killed. The first time this happened they replaced all wet things in car. It did not fix the drain tube problem because after the rain my car is full of water again. Same failure with other cars. I think they want to put dry parts in the car again at who's cost theirs or mine? with all the water in my car again there has to be corrosion and other damage to the car that is not being fixed. I would like the car replaced with a new one since I am paying fifty thousand for my car. I did not by a fish tank. That is what I got. Please help! new car nightmare. Thanks
