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.

Instrument panel reading of the numbers is not clear for consumer to see, especially when he puts his glasses on. Driver took vehicle to the dealer, and the mechanic did not have an answer at this time. The problem is that the gray on gray panel was in a six inch recess dash which shades pencil thin numbers and slashes between numbers e.g., 55/60. The most serious problem was the clarity of the speedometer readings going North, South, East, or West. (could not be read at a glance)
