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 dashboard of the vehicle has become very sticky, melting, in the heat with small pieces of the dashboard falling off. Driving in the daylight compromises driver safety due to the glare in the windshield from the wet shiny look of the dashboard in front of the driver reflecting into the drivers field of vision. There appears to be a defect in the material used by the manufacturer in the production of this dashboard. Not only is it a driving safety issue but it also devalues the vehicle for trade or resale.

Top of dashboard has become very soft and sticky. The material covering the dashboard has deteriorated. It is causing a high shine and glare on the windshield and making it dangerous to drive.

I noticed the dash board is starting to melt. In the sun it is real sticky. I live in Florida and the sun seems to be melting the dash close to the windshield.
