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 contact owns a 2005 Buick Lacrosse. He contacted NHTSA last week complaining that while driving and looking in the side mirror there is a narrow chrome strip on the dashboard. When the windows are up one can see a reflection. This is a distraction, and if a motorcycleis right in that reflection one may not be able to see it.
