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 windshield window trimming began to come off. at first it was just loose and i tried to snap it back on. this was a temporary fix. when i began to drive at a reasonable speed it start to hang off and it was noticeable. It finally flew off while i was on the highway.
