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

Headlamps turn off while driving. It occurs on a nightly basis. Other cars cannot see me. Almost hit someone crossing the street before I noticed the lights were off. Sometimes cycling the lights on an off temporarily fixes the problem. Other times I drive with my foglamps on. I've checked the fuse and will be taking the car into the dealer next week. Previously, in 2006 the headlamps wouldn't turn off. The dealer fixed this problem.
