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.

Second time door handle has broken off. Now it's the driver side. I feel like I have child saftety locks on all the doors when I have to role down my window to open the door from the outside.

Second time an interior door handle has broken off. 1 passenger and now 1 driver

interior door handle broke off on the passenger side of the car. Just clean snap. I imagine the same genius who determined the rear handle was satisfactory is the same person who designed these handles. I mean seriously, a person reaches to open the door and the handle breaks off in the hand!

Great fun to have to always go around to the passenger side to open the door for that person.
