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 went to the store today, driving down a busy road at about 45 mph, my drivers side vent window suddenly came loose! I looked in the rear view mirror to see what was going on, too late! it flew into opposing traffic and shattered all over the road. The glue that holds the "hinge" to the glass is barely there. Obviously, the glue did not hold to a painted surface.

Front driver window stopped working. Has been replaced twice and a whopping $330 each time. Passenger window is now acting up. Will roll down but not up, and sometimes won't move at all. The second time the driver side window broke, a rock from a truck ahead flew into my window and hit the back seat. Inches from my eye. This vehicle has a horrible reputation of the windows motor/regulator units.

2001 - Dodge Caravan - left rear tail light fell out, hanging on by wires. Took to private mechanic, said dealer had to fix. Took to dealer, stated could not reinstall, needed whole new unit for dry rotted rubber gasket. Took vehicle to home depot, bought 1 tube of black exterior silicone caulk. Drove vehicle home, and cleaned area around rear tail light. Pushed light back into place and caulked around dry rotted rubber. Taped tail light to body assembly (be careful to use tape which will not damage vehicle). Left vehicle to sit still for 24 hours as caulk dried. Made this simple repair myself for $2.86 when the dealer wanted over $500 to repair. What a rip off when they can't even make a vehicle that lasts, they have to price gouge their customers.

Passenger window intermittently returns to shut position. If window is lowered, then it may take 1-2 days before the window will return to closed position.
