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.

Whenever windshield wipers are in use, they can be used only in high position. After vehicle has warmed up, wipers would not work properly in the rain. The more moisture in the atmosphere, the worse the wipers work or stop completely. When parked in garage & heater drys out wipers, they work fine on high, but not on low.
