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.

i am so frustrated with this car, i have had to pour so much money into it... i am starting to doubt my decision to buy this car, but it stops randomly when i slow down or stop at a light... the drivers side door handle is missing, and the brakes are about 50/50 on whether it will stop when you need them too!!!! i have taken it in for estimates and it is amazing how much people want to charge just to look at it, not even to fix it!!!!
