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.

1) problem with right rear passenger door lock, not unlocking. Must manually unlock from inside of car. 2) driver side door not closing. When attempting to close door it bounces back. The only way to close the door is to force it with body weight.

1st problem with car, door would not stay closed after several attempts to slam door would bounce off door frame. 2nd problem steering wheel would make grinding noise when making left turns only which would result in stiffness of left turn. 3rd problem, 1st winter that I had the car, the molding at the front windshield would be off of the window before any attempt to remove the snow, the dealer replaced molding. 2nd winter came along, front windshield molding off of the window. The dealer stated I will have to pay for replacement, and stated that it was because I hit molding with ice scraper, I explained molding was already off before ice & snow removal. Dealer/owner asked where is the molding I told him I do not know, it was brought to my attention that it was no longer there. Service manager stated that since I hit molding with ice scraper that air got under molding and when driving came off. But both times molding off window prior to any attempt of ice & snow removal. Therefore, I will have to pay $50. Thank you.
