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.

Consumer states that while driving and no warning windshield wipers will work intermittently, and it will be hard for the consumer to see during rainy weather. Dealer notified. Consumer stated this failure occurred over a half of dozen times. He also had the same problems with his astro van, and fleetwood trailer.

Windshield wipers constantly chatter, dealer says live with it. Tried new blades, inserts etc many times, no help. To this date they still chatter when it is raining. Car is under warranty to 6 yrs and 60000 miles. No satisfaction fron dealer. No response from manyfacturer when complaint was filed months ago.

1. gear shift had too much play when going from park to drive (dealer-no problem found) 2. rear rotors replaced because dealer found them warped at 2221 miles 3. running rough and rotten smell (dealer found no problem) 4. wipers went out on 2/26/99, dealer had to order part so drove til 3/2/99 without wipers. Upon returning to dealer entire dashboard had gone out. They kept the car until 3/5, again went to dealer on 3/26 for wipers not working, still had to order more parts, returned on 4/6 to get replaced again. So I was from 2/26/99 to 4/6/99 without windshield wipers. 5. complained of noise when turning right, they found no problem, I also complained of rough ride, they replace bushings and lubed bar - felt better for a day, but rough ride returned after that. I feel they have had my car more than I have. I currently have 5225 miles on a 13 month old Cadillac, thus is outragious. Thank you.
