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.

After driving for a few hours with the lights on in the evening time the headlights have had occassion to simply go out. If I stop for about 10 min or so the lights will come back on. I witnessed another van experience the same thing and followed the driver to confirm the situation. That driver advised that their is a bad switch that gets to much vibration and needs to be replaced. So far I've been lucky and have been able to get the vehicle off to the side of the road without any damage.
