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.

When signaling to turn left or right, only the left turn signal will flash. The right turn signal never flashes. However, both lights will flash when hazard lights are on and when locking/unlocking car doors.

1. the headlight cannot be turn on as I drove into a 1-mile dark tunnel in us West. 2. it persists for about 1-days during a trip to the us West in the dry heat environment. After that, the headlight work normal again as I came back to California. 3. nothing has being done since then since I will probably not drive to us West in the visible near future. The old parts are still available in my car.
