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.

We just recently purchashed our new car. We were driving on the highway at night. The lights (head lights and dash lights) kept getting dim almost as if they were going to go out. We thought maybe we had a wire that had not been tightened or that had come lose. Other cars think we are blinking our lights at them. What happens if a big truck thinks we are giving him the "all clear to come over in front of me"? the car was taken in to the service dept and we were told that it was "intermittent dimming (flickering) of headlamps and/or instrument panel lighting-normal characteristic. This may occur because of transient current loads on the electrical system during normal vehicle operation" per the tsb (technical service bulletin). Why werent we told about this before we purchased the car"? the lights dont "flicker" they get dim to the point they are almost going out! so how can this problem be considered "normal"" so much for a new car!
