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.

I bought my Ford Explorer used and I have been having problems with my rear wiper motor ever since I bought it. I replaced it 5x or more with those aftermarket wiper motors. Still had problems so I bought an original wiper motor online for $116.00. Ever since I bought the original wiper motor I haven't really had problem with it besides it making a grinding sound every time I turn it on.
