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.

Trans Am 5.7L

With both sun visors literally falling off onto the floor, it sure seems like a manufacture's defect. It is also a safety concern. This should be an official recall and this problem should be fixed by the manufacturer.

Trans Am Convertible 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles

A few years ago the passenger sun visor failed -- it simply fell off one day as I was driving. Since the car was 13 years old, I thought this was bad but understandable based on the age. What happened was the metal arm which connected the visor to the ball joint in the mount had broken off. I bought two new ones (the other one's exterior was very worn) and had them installed.

The other day I was driving down the highway and the driver visor suddenly broke and hit me as I was driving. Upon examination, the same thing had happened as before. The metal arm had broken off in the ball joint again -- this time the visor was only 2 years old -- something I would not expect. The ragged edge of the metal arm cut my hand. I have not tried replacing it yet because of the cost ($80+) and the concern this will happen again and cause an accident.
