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 was going through a Tim Hortons drive through and my window would not go down. Thought maybe it was frozen shut because it was the middle of winter, but I had doubted it because I had been driving it on the highway for well over 45 minutes. I finally ended up getting the window down by playing with the switch and flicking it up and down about a million times until it finally went down. I still have this problem till this day. Sometimes the window will go down fine, sometimes it won't go at all, or sometimes I can only get it to go down just a crack. This car is such a piece of steamy cow crap!!
