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.

Left side head light is overheating burning out the amber bulb which is used for daytime running light. The motor for raising and lowering the headlight lid performs erratic. The headlight motor does not recognize that the lid has shut and continues to run. The owner also indicated that the engine would shut down sometimes when this happens.
