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.

Once in awhile, the driver's side power window doesn't roll down when I press the switch. If I keep pressing & releasing it, usually I can get it to work after a minute or two & then it keeps working for the rest of the car trip. Pretty annoying at drive-up windows!! All the other power windows work great.

I'm guessing it's something to do with how the driver window switch is the only one where it rolls down the window for you even after you release the button... or maybe just because it gets used more...
