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.

Whenever it is rainy or just rained and I have to roll down the drivers side, window a very strong musty smell shows up. Often the window has water streaks on the glass after I roll it up. It appears the seal on the window is not good. I am concerned about mold and the fact my door may rotting from the inside out.

When I tried to open the front passenger side window of my 2005 Acura MDX SUV, somehow, the window glass pushed the door open too, and damaged the outside door handle. Now, I can not open that door from outside, and I can not lower the window glass more than 5 inches otherwise the door would be pushed open by it. That incident almost resulted in a bad accident on the highway.
