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 2004 Ford Ranger with 35000 miles. The contact stated that while driving at any speed he had blind spots while changing lanes. He would look in his mirrors and would not see anything but there would be a vehicle right next to him. The contact has adjusted the mirrors but that still has not solved the failure. The manufacturer and dealer were unable to resolve the failure.
