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.

This car has the worst headlight EVER because the material the headlight cover is made of either scratches or is damaged in some other way. It makes the lights almost worthless (esp in fog). there have been quite a few times I have let my daughter take my car at night for just this reason. I feel this part should be a recall as it can cause a real danger to the operator of the car and others on the road!
