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.

I was driving back from Georgia at 4:30 am pitch dark and my headlamps cut off. I was next to a semi and almost crashed into him. I had to use my brights but could not figure out how to keep them on so I had to keep flashing them to see. Since then I've had to drive at night tonight on May 23, 2015 at 9 pm and my lights do not come on at all now. The only way to get home once again was to drive with my brights on. I had my brother test the lights and they come on and cut off randomly at will. This is not safe and they should be recalled.
