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.

Window Stopped Halfway Down Notes: The Pontiac Vibe is the mechanical twin of the Toyota Matrix.

2004 Pontiac Vibe gave me an unexpected surprise yesterday while going through a drive-thru window yesterday. I was trying to roll down my window yesterday at my location and my window only went down half way. I didn't think much of in the moment, but then tried to open my door and my door wouldn't open more then an inch. I thought I was too close to the curb. I moved my car out of the drive-thru since I was having issues. Then, I tried to again to roll up or down, it wouldn't move. So, I tried to open the door again, it still wouldn't open. I pushed harder and the window crashed inward onto me. The door still wouldn't open so I push really hard and the door open and the rest of the window crumbled everywhere. I wasn't expecting that.

My window is schedule to be repair today. So I went out to finish cleaning up the rest of the glass in the car. I turned on the car to try and warm up a bit and next my radio stop working. I checked to see if it was the station, no the radio just died. What is going on, this can't be normal.
