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 stated the components under the dashboard got wet. Therefore, he took the vehicle to the dealership. They found the components were wet because the windshield was installed improperly. The windshield could be moved out one inch. The dealership stated it was probably a factory defect. But the warranty expired, and H the contact would have to pay for the repairs, which have been made. All of the electronic components under the dashboard had to be replaced.
