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.

clock on trip computer went dark, bulb blew

One day I noticed the clock display had gone completely dark. I read online that it's probably just a burned-out bulb. The way to test is shine a flashlight at the clock & if you can still see it working, you only need a new bulb. They are part number 62111391260 & cost about $2 + shipping.

To replace it, pop out the trip computer -- push through the hole in the top of the tray directly below the computer -- you'll see the four bulbs across the top of the unit.

I ordered mine through, but they are cheap through the dealer as well.
