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.

This is a general complaint on just about all new cars including mine. Namely the head rest in the front and rear seats block the rear view by at least 50% and contribute to accidents especially when backing up. The head rests are too high and wide. At a recent defensive driving course I attended, the police officer giving the course said 30% of all accidents involve people backing up. I can appreciate that as the rear view is blocked as in some of the side view. I think the head rests should be smaller and that is my complaint.
