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.

When the lights are in the on position and you are traveling at 20 -25 mph and take your foot off of the accelerator, the lights will dim for approximately 3 - 4 seconds. The vehicle was taken to a local dealership that stated they could not find anything wrong and that if it were a major problem it would show up some day. The battery has also come apart (the positive battery terminal came out of the battery), the windshield washer pump has been replaced due to leaking and is now currently leaking again, therefore the washer pump will have to be replaced again. A tire has separated for no apparent reason; dealer could not find anything wrong with the tire that would have caused the tire to separate.
