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.

I filled out survey after problem could not be diagnosed. Service dept. Manager was told by his dsm, not to change parts for the sake of changing parts. On 1/31/06 serv.dept. Changed wiper switch under good will. When asked if service mgr. Would send replaced part to be tested, he stated that if he reported the part under warranty, he would be charged if the part was not broken. On 5/18, with 2 witnesses, wipers did not go on. A short time later wipers began to work. I brought vehicle on 5/25 service mgr. Was going to attempt to recreate the problem again. Unable to do so.
