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 was driving down the highway and my rear right window flew off while going 55 mph. This is extremely unsafe! I had no idea the window was only glued on! I am curious if there are other people who have had this issue and what can be done.

The 2005 Chrysler PT CRUISER has metallic-silver dash inserts around the instrument cluster and covering the passenger air bag compartment. When the sun is high in the sky the glare from the metallic-silver instrument panel is blinding. The glare is so bright it leaves spots in your eyes. The molded curves above the instruments seem to concentrate the sun??S energy. My wife is shorter and is able to adjust the top of the steering wheel to block the reflection. I am unable to do this and still handle the steering wheel comfortably. I placed electrical tape on the panel just above the center instrument to block the glare.
