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.

Headlight and dashboard lights flash intermittently, approximatley every 2 seconds. Had it looked at twice by aw golden Pontiac in reading pa and was told my car "was known to do that, and it can't be fixed." Also, I can leave it there "for the mechanic to drive it home at night, so he can see what I'm talking about." My car does not have this problem everytime I drive at night, maybe every other night, but it is no-stop when it starts. Drivers in front of me hit their brakes, because they think I'm flashing them. I can see this causing a problem if I have to deal with a person having road rage.
