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.

I submitted a reimbursement application form for the replacement of my wiper motor $438.07. The motor was replaced on January 4, I sent in the reimbursement application on January 5, and was denied on January 10. I resubmitted it two more times, because I believe I should be reimbursed for the price of the replacement of the wiper motor due to the fact that the recall on the ground harness is directly related to the wiper motor failing over time. I never received the recall notice, and therefore never had the chance to fix the harness before it caused the wiper motor to stop working. I have placed numerous phone calls, but each time I am told that they will investigate and get back with me. No one ever calls back.
