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.

There is a leak/severe condensation problem following rainstorms/high humidity. Water leaks from either moon roof or top of winshield and drips in from roof wetting cloth over middle of driver's side windshield visor. Dealership could not replicate problem but it continues to occur in weather conditions cited. Ten to twelve drops of water accumulate on either driver, dash or steering wheel when this occurs usually when starting car and proceeding to drive in the morning. This is startling when it occurs, approximately on six occasions to date, and may result in an accident.
