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.

Contact statesd the windshield wipers will not work except on high. The service dealer stated a bad air conditioning cycling switch caused the windshield wipers to fail. They stated the ignition switch module, windshield wiper module, and the air conditioning cycling switch needed to be replaced, and the computer program needed to be updated. The engine lost all power while driving; there were no warning lights or indication that there was any thing wrong with the vehicle. There was a recal 04V046000 on the windshield wiper motor, the recall was serviced, but the consumer stated the module was already broke. The vehicle will be serviced, but at consumer's expense. The consumer has already filed a complaint on the ignition switch module.
