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 parking lights and side mount lights do not turn on when I turn on the headlights on the car at night. You cannot see the car at night unless I step on the brake and then the brake lights light up. On the inside there is no light for any of the dashboard gauges. You have to know whether or not your car is in the proper gear. You have no idea how fast you are traveling or how many rpms you are reving. You cannot read the gas gauge to know if you need to fill up soon. It is extremely dangerous to drive at night time.
