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.

In temperatures below 20 degrees the windshield washer fluid freezes up, even with de-icer additive added to the system. When dirt is kicked up from a preceding automobile, you cannot clean off the windows, this leads to impossible visibility. Pulling off the road every 5 minutes to rectify this problem is not always easy to do. I'm 5ft. And its also hard to reach the window to clean it off. Several calls were placed for assistance, but I was told that the nozzles are not heated and not protected to keep the component parts from freezing. I almost hit a pedestrian since it was hard to see through the window. Driving like this all winter will be impossible.
