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 own a 2008 Scion Tc and in the winter this car gets excessive snow and ice build up in the wheel wells and this becomes a safety issue when trying to turn. I am wondering if there has been any recalls for this car for this issue, the plastic used in the wheel wells seems to hold the snow and ice rather then falling off. Is their anything that you know of that could be done to remedy this issue? I have spoke with other Scion owners and they have the same problem. Please reply with any suggestions or if their is a recall for this problem. Thank you,
