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.

The auto-dimming heated mirror on my 2001 Chevy Suburban suddenly cracked after bumping into the side of my garage door. The mirror immediately started dripping a green substance on the driveway. I started to clean up this substance with my bare hands which caused a burning sensation. I then noticed that the green liquid was discoloring/melting the paint on the side of my vehicle and eating the concrete in my driveway. I sprayed the areas down with water and found the paint on my vehicle damaged. My skin became very red and irritated after contacting this material. I can not believe that GM could knowingly sell a product to the public with no warning of any kind. The black plastic housing of the outside of the mirror also has melted due to contact with the material. I want to know what this material is and what health problems I can expect to have due to my direct contact. I want to have access to an msds report for unknown material. This is a very caustic chemical.

: the contact stated the driver's side rearview mirror was reflecting double images causing confusion while driving at night. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who determined the mirror delaminated and needed to be replaced.
