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.

problem #2

Drivers seat falls back to the back seat. Side adjustment piece fell off and the back of the seat will not stay in correct position. Dealer unable to repair - suggests purchasing new seat $600. Unacceptable for a seat to fall apart with normal use.
