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.

The active cruise control stops for no reason. This problem is intermittent. On a number of occasions (~20 times since I picked up the car), the car slows down as the traffics slows down. The car is almost at a stop (5-10 mph) and the emergency brakes comes on, the cars brakes hard & stops and the parking brake turns on. The alert "cruise control unavailable" show in the display. Thereafter the cruise will not engage. After I shut off the car and restart it, the cruise again works again. In addition to not performing as advertised, this represents a safety hazard.
