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.

Every year, I have to take my car to the Dealer to replace the rubber seal around the windows because they peel. The black seal peels and gets stuck on the paint. It looks disgusting and everyone makes a comment when they are entering the car. The dealer told me that its because of the soap I am using. I don't think it is true because I wash all of the cars in my house with the same soap. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
