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.

My heater stopped working. Then the heat would take at least a half an hour before coming on but would only stay warm when I was driving. Cannot keep my windows defrosted in the winter! very unsafe! also, my left, front headlight will go on by itself and will blink, without any key in ignition, it will still come on. Drving at night, headlights wouldnt come on but that front left headlight would blink. I can also hear a clicking sound when this is happening.

My 2001 Mitsubishi Galant has been leaking very bad on both the driver and passanger side ever since I got it. I not only have to fold my pant legs when I ride in my car but it is also growing mold, which can't be healthy. It also has never had good exterior lighting. My headlights always seem dim and they point upward rather than at the road where they belong.
