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.

problem #2

I went to move my drivers side sun-visor to block the sun and it split and partially came apart hitting my head and cutting my skin. More urgently, it blocked my view of the road and I had trouble moving it out of the way. For several long seconds, I was traveling 65 miles per hour, fighting with the visor, unable to rotate it out of the way because it was broken, with no forward view of the roadway. I was eventually able to move it to the side and hold it there with my left hand while I traveled to my destination. Once I arrived I removed it with a screw driver. Upon inspection of the passenger side visor, it is starting to split also.
