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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,700 miles


The contact stated that there were two cracks running side by side from the windshield to the passenger side on the dashboard. The contact discovered the problem on October 5, 2005. He was concerned about it because there was an air bag on the passenger's side. The cracked area was where the air bag was located. When he took vehicle to dealer to be looked at they said that everything in the dash area was connected to the dashboard. The cracked part of the dashboard was loosening from the rest of the dashboard.
