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.

A few months ago I started noticing that the dashboard of my car was getting shiny. I thought it was just some substance that I could wipe off but found it was very sticky and deteriorating. While driving on the highway this week the reflection was bad enough to cause a distraction, enough that as soon as I got home I searched the internet for what I could do to fix it. I thought mine was an isolated case but found several articles indicating that this is happening to many others as well. While I personally don't expect the manufacturer to shoulder 100% of the burden for the repair, I did want to register my case as it seemed that the manufacturers were not acknowledging this as a common problem in the hopes that they would agree to a formula to address the cost rather than everyone having to negotiate the share of cost individually.

Last year we reported a sticky sheen and powdery residue on all the pebble grain vinyl- includes dashboard, glove box area, strips under the windows and center console between the front seats. Car was taken to Lexus dealer in N. miami, fl twice with the complaint. They said they did not know what it was. Now there are reports that this is a prevalent problem with Toyota and Lexus. The sheen is causing sun glare problem as well as overall look and sticky or powdery texture. Reports are online as well as nbc news television this past Monday, Oct. 13th.

The dash board surface has become gummy and the reflection of the shiny, gummy surface on the windshield very frequently affects the visibility and impairs my capacity to see safely, specially on very sunny days. There has not been an incident yet, but I wanted to report this because I am afraid of the potential danger of an accident due to impaired visibility. I began noticing the dashboard's surface deterioration about two years ago, when the warranty had already expired.
