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, water pours in from the sunroof while raining, to the point my head, shirt and pants are completely drenched. While driving the water is coming down atop my head coming down my face creating an extremely hazardous situation. Water also drains down on the driver's side floor board due to the sunroof somehow becoming blocked with debris. Definitely a major problem!! my carpets are moldy as a result. My car smells due to this occurring after it rains! please repair this defect.
