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.

Wrote last year to explain that due to fog/film gathering on the interior windshield, visibility was reduced. Since that time, visibility has beecome severely limited and, because this fog/film could not be removed, we had the substance tested. Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (dehp) was found. This test was done in February 2015 and confined to the dried on substance. The fog/film continues to leak into the cabin and further testing will be done to determine if there are additional substances detected.
