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.

Purchased a 2006 GMC Envoy. The high beam headlights project a beam of light straight up from each light into the drivers and passengers field of view. It is not noticeable during dry conditions, but when there is mist, snow or fog it is very visible and distracting. You can see this effect by parking next to a building or parking in your garage. It lights up the ceiling in the garage very nice. I thought headlight were to project out, not up. In dry conditions, the trees are lit up by the bright lights. My dealer contacted GM and was told to check another truck, which did the same thing. GM then said there was not a problem. This is my 3rd new GMC truck, and none of the others did this. I have never driven a vehicle that has done this.
