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 3rd brake light assembly has melted from the heat of the brake light bulbs. The plastic melts and breaks the light bulbs out of the sockets.this worries me as it seems like a fire hazard and I don't know what's causing it.

This was not a car incident or accident of any sort. I drive a 2010 Ford Escape and last week I noticed my brake lights were out, so I bought the bulbs and attempted to change my lights. The problem wasn't burnt out bulbs it was melted bulbs and the piece where the bulbs sit, have also melted and it now mangled. I took photos for proof, but I don't know that the piece will fit back in.
