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 window washers just fell apart. One dealer said they would try to fix it for nothing, and then didn't. When driving, it could become dangerous to have no washer on the window if splashed. I am careful and hope it does not cause an accident. I clean my windows often, but if someone ahead on the highway cleans theirs, and it spits on my window, I have to wait till I stop to manually clean it. I have to keep cleaner and paper towels in my car, and hope no puddle gets on my window.
