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.

The rear wiper will turn on even though the car is off and there is no key in the ignition. Even after pulling the fuse the wiper will not turn off. Also, came home last night and the drl on the car were on. Once the car is turn off the lights will always go off after the passenger car door is opened then closed. The car has not been driven in several days but yet the lights were on. I am concerned that there may be an electrical issue with the car that may cause a problem while either myself or my daughter is driving it.
