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 S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

I drive a 1998 Chevy S-10. Everytime it rains, the windshield wipers stop working. I instantly go blind, and pull off the road/highway as fast as possible. The 1995-1997 Chevy S-10 has a recall on the exact same problem due to a faulty wiper motor circuit board. The description fits my problem exactly. This defect has a NHTSA campaign id number: 03V159000. My truck was manufactured in November 1997. When I called up Chevy, and told them of the problem, they said that it shouldn't be doing what it is doing. The Chevy rep. Said that my truck, manufactured in November 1997 was not included in the recall. It should because my windshield wipers freeze at the slightest bit of rain. I have not gotten this problem fixed yet.
