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.

Summer 2005 the driver's side windshield wiper stopped working during a rainstorm while operating the vehicle leaving my visibility extremely impaired. Upon subsequent examination, I noticed that the nut holding the wiper to the post had loosened and backed off. This stripped the mating groves off both the wiper arm (cast aluminum) and post (soft metal). Even after re-tightening the nut, the wiper was unable to move because the wiper arm and post were too badly damaged; all of the groves were entirely removed for the cast aluminum wiper arm. I was unable to go to a dealer to have this repaired. I drilled a keyway into both the wiper arm and post. I filled the keyway with a portion of a large paper clip. The damage remains this way currently. Summer 2005 having experienced the problem with the Aveo 2004 (above) I tightened the nuts on both the passenger and driver's wipers on my Aveo 2005. January 2007 the driver's side windshield wiper stopped working during a snowstorm while operating vehicle leaving my wife's visibility extremely impaired. Upon subsequent examination, I noticed that the nut holding the wiper to the post had loosened and backed off even with re-tightening this nut in the summer of 2005. This stripped the mating groves off both the wiper arm (cast aluminum) and post (soft metal). I have taken this car to the dealer to have both the wiper arm and post replaced. I am currently waiting on parts to have to repair made.--after searching the web I discovered that someone else had a problem with their driver's side wiper arm nut coming loose. www.epinions.com/content_160219565700.
