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.

While driving on the expressway, both of my lowbeams went out at the same time. I switched to my highbeams and they worked fine. Upon getting it checked out, the headlights were still good, as were the fuses and relays. The diagnosis pointed to the switch, but that has not been opened or replaced yet.
