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.

sucks to have to change the light bulb over and over on an almost perfect vehicle, hope to find problem soon. hope its fuse's or something simple.

Update from Mar 17, 2013: For some reason while changing them again i realized that the socket was just kind of "loose" so i just jimmyed it alittle. nothing. i then closed the hooded turned the lights on and it worked, but then they went out after a while of driving. so i stopped, slammed the hood down again. and viola it worked like a charm, hoping it stays just annoying and stops taking money out my familys pockets.
