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.

When my vehicle was under warranty I did have a problem with the lights going completely out for a few seconds at night while driving. The blinked off and then on again. When I took it in for a repair and mentioning all the little things that were not working before the warrranty was up I had mentioned that along with a few other minor complaints. The did not find any problem with the lights. I did have a problem also with the alignment and they said that was fine also and it was not fixed. But it definatly had a problem with that also. The same thing happened to me later on while driving at night when the lights went out. But they did come back on after a few seconds. It is a very scary feeling when driving in the country at night and the light go out. It has been happening more now. My vehicle has 55,000 on it. I think that is to premature to have such an expensive safety problem. I did call the dealer and he said that the lighting system for replacement is like $1,200. They only made that lighting system for 2 years and I can see why. It is faulty. Has there been other problems? please let me know what I can do about this. Thank you
