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 owns a 2001 Ford Mustang convertible. The contact stated that oxidation build-up on the headlight covers is causing poor visibility when driving at night. In addition, the convertible top does not go up or down because the control module does not recognize when the emergency brake is on or off. The contact feels that this is unsafe because the top can go up or down without warning. The current mileage was 97,000 and failure mileage was 94,000. Updated 06/03/09 updated 06/04/09.

Headlights fogging up from inside, have been getting worse very quickly and it is now getting so bad I may have to get new lights as they are making it dimmer.

The headlamp lenses are fogged over from the inside. The headlamp appears to have a flaky film on the inside of the lens. The problem has progressively gotten worse as time passed. I have talked with multiple dealers and the manufacturer and nothing was done. The response remains the same, "it just happens." The film has become so thick that it is impairing the light coming from the headlamp at night.
