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.

Windshield wipers turn on and off. Although problem is intermittent, they don't work when needed. If switch is left on and forgot they start working without being aware that they were left on.

We bought this van in januarary 1, 2000 we have had this van for a year now and have had the brakes done on it 8 times. The brakes get so hot that it melts the valve stems. Also when we bought this van the yellow lights on the front dash for the rear window wiper and the other lights surrounding that light keep blinking and wont stop blinking until driving on the freeway for about 10 to 15 minutes. The dealership didn't know how to make the lights stop blinking.
