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.

Windshield wipers park in wrong position when snowing or icy outside. This causes wiper arms to criss-cross and bend badly and becomes dangerous when conditions are bad outside.

I own a 1998 Pontiac grand-prix. My windshield wipers stop in the up-right position. This has caused impaired vision. I know that the 1997 model was recalled for the same malfunction. I am the mother of three children and safety is most important issue when I purchase a car. Unfortunately this is not under warranty and a very expensive part to replace. I do not feel this should go out at only 94,000 miles.

I own a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix which exhibited the same problem described in 99V348000. It has come to my attention that GM has added the 1998 models to ther service bulletin (www.pace317.com/gp/tsb/98wipers.html) it would be helpful if the 1998 model were added to this recall.
