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.

When driving both of the side view mirrors cracked. Consumer notified the dealer about this issue in the past. However, the problem recurred. Vehicle needed repair on front brakes; however, it was declined by the consumer.

Stress fracture in passenger mirror and driver mirror. Heard from dealer that this has been a problem, but do not see it listed anywhere. Has happened to me in each mirror separately. First time while using the mirror defogger, 2nd time while just driving down the road. The mirrors just crack up the middle and the sound is like someone has thrown a rock at your vehicle.

When driving the truck the driver's outside mirror on the door shakes, causing a blur in the mirror when trying to look out of it. Has taken to the dealer, but they can't correct the problem.
