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.

While driving said vehicle into the sun, the installed factory chrome decorative trim shines back into the drivers eyes making it very hard to read the car instruments, the trim area shines like diamonds into the drivers eyes even with sunglasses on in the Arizona sun, this also very distracting. European cars are not built with this distraction. The drivers seat ( center ) does not align with the steering wheel, it is offset to the right of center of the wheel by 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, the seat also rubs very hard against the center counsel, so hard that the seat squeaks as it rubs onto the counsel. The manufacture has failed to address this problem. Seat may also jam at some point with this problem.
