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 started to have problems with the digital clock/stereo display. It would go dim, then get brighter, sometimes it would go out completely, & then flicker back on. Some days there would be no problem at all. After it would go out, I could sometimes get it to come back on if I tapped on the screen. This happened for about a week, after that it went out for good. The clock is still keeping time though because sometimes if you look at it a certain angle in the sunlight, you can see it. I have never gotten it fixed, because it isn't under warranty & I don't have the money. It is a real pain though, it's tough to find radio stations when you can't see where you're at on the dial!!!
