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.

I see that the failure to function correctly of the windshield wipers area is a known thing on these trucks. But I feel that the website should raise their "worthy of mentioning system" to a much higher hazard rating. Simply do to the fact that windshield wipers functioning correctly is a major safety concern.

Aside from that, mine in particular. I've noticed that after a very heavy passing of rain messes with the wiper motors functioning. If I try to engage cleaning mode the wipers just remained engaged long after disengaging the cleaning mode. And sometimes it will stop in the middle of stroke.
