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.

Windshield wipers are working intermittently or stopping while operating or momentary not working at all when needed. Consumer states that there is a recall on the windshield wipers. I am unable to find any thing on this recall concerning this make, model & year. NHTSA data base shows no recall on the windshield wipers. Manufacturer was notified, and informed consumer that this vehicle was not covered under that recall due to VIN.
