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.

Right rear door will not open from the outside or inside. Now the left front door wont open or close from inside or outside and dealer indicates the door locks have failed and will need replaced at $475/door. The right front door has now started to not open sporadically. This has to be a manufacturer defect when 3 of the 4 door handles/locking mechanisms have now failed. This is a safety issue when you cannot enter or exit out of 3 doors of a car due to faulty locking mechanisms.
