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.

Each time the fog lamps are used, seems the electrical system pops the fog lamp glass. This has happened 3 times on both driver and passenger side. Including piping of the factory fog lamps that came on the vehicle and then the replacements. The fog lamps cannot be used without popping.

Complete loss of power in both the gas engine and in the hybrid electric engine while going 70 mph, both the alarm systems-audible and dash went off. With no power I was able to get off the highway without crashing the car.
