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.

Windshield wipers become inoperable in freezing temperatures and snowstorms. Wiper blades freeze and will not clear the windshield. Snow and ice gather in the trough where the blades rest and block fluid. Warming feature will not clear this problem as the snow and ice continue to accumulate in this area. Salt cannot be cleared from the windshield even though the vehicle is fully warmed up and the wiper warming feature is activated. The rear wiper assembly also freezes and accumulates large ice chunks. My visibility becomes impaired by over 75% causing an extreme hazard.
