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 car always smelled musty after rain. When I took it to the dealership years ago, they said that it may be the windshield and I needed to have the person who replace my windshield look at it. The smell never got bad so I just assumed it must have been the molding around the windshield. Well, last week, there were torrential rains and the cargo area was soaked. I did an internet search which said tell the dealership to check the sunroof tubing for clogs. This is what I did and the sunroof tube was cleared and the dealership dried the carpet.
