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.

Heated mirrors: The mirrors are heated to melt frost or ice. This feature is activated whenever you turn on the rear window defroster. Using this feature during morning warm-up I was surprised to find the drivers side mirror with a top to bottom vertical crack down the mirror after a brief 15 minute warm-up period. This occurred in my driveway in an open area at a temperature of around 26 degree F. faulty part or non-tempered glass used?
