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.

1998 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 232008


  • 80,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette. The contact stated that the windshield wipers spontaneously stopped working. He is in the process of having the vehicle inspected by a technician to determine the cause of the failure. He speculated that the failure occurred because the compartment that holds the windshield wiper motor is improperly sealed, which allows water to reach the motor and cause it to fail. Secondly, he concluded that the windshield wiper utters do not properly drain the water in the windshield wiper assembly, which promotes water build up. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were 80,000.
