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.

I have a 2003 Acura Cls that required replacement of a headlight at 66000 miles. This headlight cost $928.85. This is a traffic safety item. It should not cost so much to make a "young" auto safe to drive. I believe this a manufactoring defect. It should be listed as a saftey recall.

Blue high intensity lighting creates a hazard to oncoming traffic. I seems to me that standard high beams are less hazardous to approaching traffic, and I along with almost everyone I have spoken to would like to see these be illegal to use on whichever models they are installed.

I am complaining about the new hid headlights on some new vehicles. They are very blinding to me and dangerous. They should be banned. I cannot fill out the rest of this correctly because dates and the complaint questions do not fit.
