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.

In order for occupants to exit the vehicle, while the doors are locked, the door must be opened by someone from the outside. The dealer recommended replacing the auto window control and locks on all three doors. The driver side door lock failed previously. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer who replaced the auto window controls and lock to remedy the problem. There were no warning indicators prior to the lock failure.
