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.

The contact owns a 2008 Ford Escape. The contact stated that there is a large glare on the windshield, especially in the sun light, which temporarily impairs his visibility. The dealer acknowledged the failure, but was unable to provide a remedy. The contact called the manufacturer and they referred him back to the dealer. The failure still persists. The failure mileage was 13 and current mileage was 3,658. Updated 6/2/08 the drivers side mirror would grind when the consumer rolled it or down. Updated 06/02/08
