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 would like to add a complaint to the NHTSA action number: EA06019. I have a 2003 Dodge Neon and the multifunction switch for my head lights has failed twice. In both cases I noticed a plume of smoke come out of my steering column and with in two weeks I lost my low beams and then my high beams failed a week or so later. The multifunction switch was replaced under warranty the first time that it failed. The second time (which happened this past week) my car is no longer under warranty and I must now pay to have the multifunctions switch replaced.

I noticed one day that a white puff of smoke came from the steering column shroud. I turned the car off immediately and turned it back on. It did not happen again so I continued to use the vehicle. Several months after my headlights stopped working, the brights however worked fine. I could wiggle the wiring in the dash the steering wheel all the way down and they worked. I made an appointment with the dealer and before I could get in the headlights died completely. The dealer replaced the multi-function stalk under warranty and everything worked fine until I sold the car.
