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.

The headlight system on this vehicle leaves a lot to be desired. The headlights are veiled somehow so that there is no illumination above the headlights with low beam. When driving in hilly areas, the forward projection of the headlights is very limited when traveling down hill. The hi beams illuminate well, but when driving in the country with oncoming traffic and low beams in hilly areas, the view of the side of the road ahead is very restricted. If I had driven this vehicle at night before I bought it, I doubt that I would have bought it, it's that bad.
