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 side view mirrors on the driver and passenger side will move at any time without a command. Too often when I want to change lanes, the mirror is not in the correct position. Dangerous

While driving, the driver and passenger side mirrors will readjust at random. This not only mashed changing lanes unsafe, but adds an unneeded distraction to set them back to a usable position.

First noticed problem when merging onto interstate. The drivers side mirror was pointing down so I adjusted it while accelerating to merge into traffic. Once the mirror was in place I switched the mirror selector switch to the center neutral position. The mirror immediately started moving on its own and ended up pointing toward the sky. I had a near miss with a small car in my blind spot. Even being familiar with the problem there have been several more near misses. The dealership simply disconnects the battery for a few minutes and sends me on my way. This fixes the problem for a few hours but it always comes back. Both side mirrors are doing the same thing but the drivers side is more affected.

When adjusting the side view mirrors they just start moving on their own...sometimes while driving.. and it's dangerouse especially when they move without U realizing and you go to check them and they are all weird so you have to adjust them while driving.. once you've adjusted one the other one will move for no reason..

Drivers' mirror adjustment/memory setting: The drivers' mirror will start clicking/moving, when I hit the remote.when the mirrors tilt down after put in reverse, the driver's mirror will not return back to the memory setting, which has to be reset everytime, in order to properly use mirrors.I have turned off the memory for the mirrors, but the mirror continues to move.
