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.

Front seat ergonomics are bad! curves your back forward and head down. The headrest is tilted too far forward and down. It has ruined my back. Visibility front and back is minimal. Can't see hood or car corners. Distance to objects, other cars etc. Is a guessing game. When foot is resting on brake and you step on gas, engine drops to idle. Dealer says this is a safety feature. It's dangerous!!!!!

The windshield wipers do not wipe the windshield. The wipers smear the water and decrease the visibility. At night this is very dangerous when car lights reflect and obstruct the drivers vision. I have had the wipers replaced twice and no solution. The dealer has no solution to the problem. Can you help ?
