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.

The rear view miirror on the passenger side does not move far enought to the left (9 P'clock) to permit adjustment so that there is a serious blind spot on cars moving up toward the left rear of the vehicle. So I conclluded there I a a serious design flaw in the mirror mechanism.... I talked to gary rhine, the dealer service advisor, and he said there was nothing that can be done about it. I have never owned a vehicle wherein the driver's rear view mirror could not be a adjusted all the way outward satisfactorily... I believe a recall is appropriate..........................................................................left rear of the vehicle. Attempts to adjust many itimes faile, so I conclude there is a design failure this failure nearly caused 2 accidents as I started to miove into the left lane.. I talked to gary rhine.
