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.

01/10/07 windshield wiper failure to clear windshield when using the wipers to clear snow from windshield, the middle of both wipers would not clear snow enough to see out in certain spots. Winter blades had just been installed. I stopped the car and wiped them off. Blades continued to skip over certain spots on windshield. This has happened numerous times. I agree with others statement that maybe this car is not meant to be driven in the snow, or at least wipers not meant to clear off snow as it lands on windshield. I too, had previously completely cleared buildup of windshield before starting out.
