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.

On Tuesday, 27 Jan, 2008 - I was driving a 2008 Dodge 1500 during a sleet & snow storm. The windshield wipers were operating normally when the driver's side windshield wiper fell off. I immediately drove to the norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership service department and the wiper was repaired. Approximately 2 hours later I was driving on interstate 35 and, while operating normally, the passenger side windshield wiper fell off. In both cases, visibility was rapidly limited. I was driving in heavy traffic and under hazardous weather conditions. I returned to the dealership today, January 28, 2009 and the passenger side wiper was repaired. I expressed my frustration and concern that the failures were a design flaw. The service manager indicated that the new windshield wipers do not have a retention bolt as do older models. I expressed my opinion that 2 failures in one day indicates the need for investigation. No paperwork or documentation was generated.
