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.

Attorney writes in regards to lemon law on behalf of a client the vehicle was burning oil and it was determined it was necessary to replace the O rings. After a week at the dealership, the vehicle was returned to the consumer. The very next day, the vehicle would not start and it was towed to the dealer. The vehicle was leaking gas. It appeared the O ring was torn and all four O rings were replaced. There was a water leak inside the vehicle. The dealer ordered a special adhesive/sealant for the convertible top. The master switch that raised or lowered all of the windows did not work on a consistent basis. When the doors were opened, the front windows would go down, but they wouldn't come back up. The regulators were replaced. The left rear window would not go up at all. There was a rattle coming from the center of the dashboard at random while driving. The convertible top would not close, the luggage compartment was not properly aligned. The sunroof drains were clogged and water was backing up into the vehicle which was causing the water leak. The left front seat motor had to be replaced as the seat was not adjusting properly. The convertible top cables were fraying. The transmission was erratic and not accelerating smoothly.
