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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: I've heard about issues with the parking brake not being sufficient with this car. To be fair, it must be hard to hold back all that awesomeness.

Parking brakes not disengaging. The car will not move even when in gear and gas is applied. It felt like one of the wheels is locked. If parked inside a garage, constitutes severe hazard especially for inexperience drivers as the car may suddenly move if the brake suddenly disengages. There is no telling when the brake will disengage. The brakes eventually disengaged after several tries of rocking the car by alternately engaging the gears between reverse and drive. This situation has happened twice in the past.
