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.

: the contact stated over a period of two years acorns have accumulated inside the holes surrounding the windshield wiper arms. The holes are two inches in diameter. The contact lives near an acorn tree and the acorns funnel themselves down into the holes. There were 50 or more acorns inside that caused the mechanism to bind. The contact believes this is a design defect. This caused the wiping mechanism to bind and stripped the gear in the windshield wiper motor causing the wipers to stop working. The wipers have been repaired. Updated 3/9/2006 -
