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.

Unexpected glare from the instrument panel has the potential to blind you while driving thru winding roads in bright sunlight. The curvature of the lower right and left corners of the panel needs to be made of a non-glare material. I am going to place something in each corner to keep them from reflecting the sun back in anyone's eyes.
