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.

As I was driving with my minor children in the vehicle I noticed that my headlights were not on. I assumed that it may hav been an malfunction in my switch. But upon a very dear and close friend of mine found the info for me on the internet that there had been a recall on my vehicle for this very problem. So not only was me and my family put in harms way but therr has been an out of pocket expense that accrued as well. Also I am more baffled that I wasn't notified of any means that certain actions were and needed 2 B taken in order 2 get the issue resolved. I would like 4 this matter 2 B handled promptly and in a timely manner. As this matter leaves me unable to feel safe 2 drive after a certain time in the P.M. also I read that there is also an issue with the drivers side control switch which I would like to B taken care of as well. Please make sure that not only I but other customers R made aware of things such as this which could by all means lead 2 something more tragic.
