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.

Just got a new engine, new brakes, 4 tires, and now I find out on way home from work @10:30pm I have no brake lights. I'm a single mother of 2 I can't afford to be getting pulled over or getting tickets....I tried to replace the bulbs, its not that, I tried to replace the fuse it's not that, when is enough going to be enough?

The passenger side brake light stops working even though the bulb is fine. There seems to be corrosion on the contacts which is really a design problem with the van. At this point I have given up on a fix because it keeps occurring. van has 154k now it needs to go.
