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.

Sitting still under carport (car not moving). Turned on ignition to check gas amount and the lights on the dash did not come on. I moved it out from carport and they came on. Few hours later the lights would not come on again. The only keys on key ring are 1 house key, 1 car door key and the key fob. This car was not moving when this happened.

When switching headlights to high beams, the auto lights have a tendency to completely turn off - leaving the driver with no ability to see the road. This has happened to me at least 10 times since February of this year (2008). It could easily cause an accident since you cannot see where you are going and in a panic to turn them back on you are all over the road! it is extremely dangerous and extremely frightening!
