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 contact stated the towing capacity listed in the owner's manual conflicts with a brochure provided by the dealer. The brochure made no mention of third row seating having an impact on towing capacity while the owner's manual indicated the third row seating reduced towing capacity. While towing a snowmobile traveling 30mph the vehicle experienced a loss of power, the rear of the vehicle dropped down and the front wheels lost traction. The vehicle was inspected by a regional representative from the manufacturer who was unable to determine there was a problem.
