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.

Reflection on windshield makes visibility very difficult. This causes driving blind for short instances and makes maneuvering/parking in tight spots almost impossible.

Windshield glare unsafe. E.g. rounding corner into sunlight causes dash reflection onto windshield & unable to see objects or vehicles in front. Use of polarized sunglasses helps...but can't wear them all the time. Difficult to judge distance, see other vehicles.

The reflection of the dashboard onto the windshield impedes visibility out of the windshield. Going from the outside (both sunny and cloudy days) into a garage or tunnel, the extreme glare prohibits visiblity through the windsheild. When in a parking lot and backing out of a space, visibility is restricted seeing the adjacent cars.

Contact states the interior color of vehicle is causing a glare in the windshield, making it difficult to see. This happens on a clear and sunny day. When it is cloudy the reflection is not as bad. The service dealer suggested putting a rug on the dashboard to eliminate this problem.
