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.

Windshield rearview mirror (electrochromic) vibrates on rough road surfaces -and- at freeway speeds. This imparts an extremely blurred image. The original mirror was replaced by the dealership, but the replacement exhibits this problem also.

Driver's door outside mirror failed. Does not refect anymore and you see double when looking at it. Electrochromatic feature of this mirror failed. Have seen many reports of this failure but most must have been replaced under warranty. This safety defect in these mirrors could cause an accident or serious injury since you cannot see once they fail.
