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.

Wiper motor fail. 2001 Suburban 6.0L V8. Wiper motor fail. The wiper motor in my truck always fails. The last time it failed was September 27th 2010 during a heavy rain storm. To make a long story short I almost ran over a pedestrian, and ended up on the sidewalk. (technically that is a crash) the wiper motor just stopped while it was raining. Last year during heavy snow the motor failed again. I had to pull over for an hour until the storm was over. Not to mention numerous other times as well. This motor fails a lot I lost count. The events that lead up to the failed wiper motor are rain, snow, sleet, sometime the motor fails during a sunny day and no moisture in the air or failed just to clean your window. Nothing has been done to correct the wiper motor failure because it's too expensive for me; General Motors should fix this serious problem before someone get killed.
