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.

Plastic adjusters on headlights break when they become brittle leaving the lights aiming at the ground. Headlight bulbs constantly burn out. Amber light with "cruise control not available" has the affect of limiting the RPM to about 2800rpm, past this the engine quits and starts again under 2800rpm. Hold the accelerator down and the engine bucks on and off. This is dangerous as you cannot accelerate when you need to.
