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.

About 2 or 3 weeks ago I noticed something that was hanging from the front part of the car. I contacted the dealer and they informed me it was an engine covered, since I am leasing the car I requested to be repaired. The dealer informed me it was not covered because the damage was caused by me. He also told me vovos are too low in the front and if you pushed against a car bumper or something like that it will cause the engine cover to fall. As far as know this is not in the manual and was never informed of this vovos problems. They charged me $151.06 to replace the engine covered.

Battery was drained, and this caused car not to start at 150 miles. SRS light kept coming on at 1100 miles. This indicated that there was something wrong with airbags. At 1400 miles, SRS light appeared again after dealer had corrected problem. The vehicle failed to start. The forward and backward seat adjustment was not working. There was noise coming from the sunroof. The engine was noisy. The engine light came on.
