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.

This car is equipped with automatic headlights that come on when you start the car at night.the problem I had was we could not turn on the high beams when using this feature.my dealer showed me they all do this.I had to slow way down because of this unsafe feature. We have had other car with this same feature and we could always use the high beams.
