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.

Not long after purchasing the car from jones junction Hyundai bel air, I noticed that the headlight/windshield wiper stalk was having problems. Sometime the headlights and the dashboard lights would not work properly. At night, the lights for the dashboard would go out. The stalk had problems. Also, the windshield wipers, the fluids would not squirt properly to effectively clean my windshield as it should. These are 2 separate problems that I have noticed over the years.
