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 stop light stops functioning intermittently. I replace the bulb and it sometimes works for a few days and then again, it stops working. I tried to buy the tail light socket, but they come up with a different part even though they search through my VIN at an authorized parts retailer. I believe it is related to the recall campaign number 05V245000 but since my car was of a later model by one year, it missed the recall. I wouldn't have cared if I found an exact replacement part, but since they came up with a modified part at the store, it makes me think my car has the defective tail lights but the manufacturers tried to get away with it by not including that year's model in their recall to avoid another thousands of replacements.
