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 rubber part to my trunk latch has melted almost completely! in warm weather it transfers to my hands. In winter in cold weather (below 50 degrees) I can't open the trunk at all. Now the surrounding part around my latch has loosen. I'm so frustrated that when I can actually get into my trunk my fingers are covered in tar.

Trunk latch has become melted/sticky leaving a residue on hands during summer and frozen and non-working during colder months. This causes issues due to inability to access trunk for spare tire and safety equipment.
