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.

Color of the dashboard, light gray, is causing a severe glare in windshield during daylight hours regardless of the weather. The dashboard contains a horizontal split that runs across the width of the dashboard. The forward section of the dashboard contains the air (defroster) grill. This causes the glare to contain reverse images of the air grill and the horizontal split line. Dealership examined vehicle and informed consumer nothing can be done to remedy this problem.
