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 got home from some grocery shopping, and started taking trips of groceries in. When I came out for the last trip, I noticed the driver's side window had slipped down. I removed the door panel, and sure enough it had fallen off the track. After cleaning the rollers, I put the window back onto the track. It's been about a month since it's happened, and it hasn't happened since. Not too much of a problem, just a little annoying.

My driver side window had a new motor installed two years ago, and now today the window has fallen out of its track. The weather stripping has also been an issue since I've had the car, in that it likes to curl inward at times. No matter what vehicle you have, when this happens its almost always a pain to fix if you're able to do it yourself, or it is expensive to have a mechanic fix it. I'm quite fed up with the window issues I keep having with this car.
