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.

My dash board Is melting. It Is really sticky and produce a glare on windshield when driving in the direction of sun. It Is becoming very difficult to see. There Is a recall on other years and models. Recall should be reevaluated to include all cars effected by this defect.

The safety issue with my vehicle Is the "melting dashboard, " it seems to be common with vehicles like mine. The stick-glue like substance Is not only a nuisance but also a safety hazard. It creates a glare on the windshield that makes it nearly impossible to look straight forward, especially during afternoon hours of driving. At times I have to lean to one side or the other. The gooey substance and gashes along with the safety concern over the glare in my opinion call for a recall. This Is not normal. Please look into this issue.
