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.

Material headlamps are made of is yellowing/dull to the point that it interferes with your vision at night. We have tried to clean and bluff them. Then we were told to try wet sanding and cleaning them. This helped somewhat for awhile. Replacement for both headlamps cost over $700 to replace. The vehicle runs okay and would like to keep it for awhile longer, but night driving in it is really becoming a problem. I have spoken to several people with vehicles in that age model that are experiencing the same problems.

The headlight lenses has produced a thick haze on them. As a result the light were becoming very dim and the consumer had to drive with the high beams on. Please provide additional information.

The plastic headlight lenses contained glazed, which caused poor illumination and resulted in poor visibility. Almost all of these models had the same problem.
