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 #1

The new high-intensity headlights, that are bluish in color, are extraordinarily blinding. This headlight, obviously, should have never been approved, and never used. Perhaps it is an improvement to the drivers that use the bluish headlights, but it is a safety hazard to oncoming automobiles. They need to be banned before (more) lives are lost. With the NHTSA being so safety conscious, I cannot fathom why these headlights were ever approved, and even now that we know how blinding they are, why they have not been banned. You really need to resolve this problem. Thank you.
