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 windshield wipers would just come on and not shut off. We tried several things but the wipers would not stop. I had to take the fuse out so it cause further damage.

New cars are being made with headlights way too bright, even on the dim settings. When the oncoming car is on the same level and orientation (I.e., flat road), the brightness is not too bad, but roads are not flat. There is no question about increase in brightness in recent years. In Connecticut (where I live), it is a common scenario to be on a corner combined with a small elevation peak resulting in oncoming headlights pointing directly at you. With newer cars, the result is momentary total blindness (looking low and to the right does not help).
