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.

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy. The control panel located on the driver's door constantly fails, so that I am unable to operate the window. The entire unit has been replaced and the same problem is occurring, after only a month. I cannot keep replacing the unit at a cost of $270 each time. The unit will work one day and not the next until finally it fails all together. I would like any information regarding this problem.
