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 went to move my visor and it broke off the hinge, I can't seem to find a way to fix it. When I am driving it sometime will fall out of the hinge hole ( I can get it into the hole but I can't get it to stay very long) and swing back and forth. It has hit me in the head a couple times already. This is a safety hazard.
