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.

In 2006, my drivers side mirror was leaking a black gel-like substance. After this started to happen, I noticed a circular "oily residue-look" in the middle of the mirror. It looks like oil was rubbed in the center of the mirror. Now all images in the mirror have a "double-vision, blurry" effect... and the mirror has lost the "dimming effect" for the headlights of the cars behind me.. a lot glare is present at nighttime. Dealers recommended replacement.. at my expense.
