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.

I cannot keep the windshield on my new 2008 Impreza fog free. The dealer noticed a "film" on it and cleaned it. The fogging returned after a day. I've used anitifogging solution that lasts about 3 days and the "film" and fogging returns. This can be very dangerous after dark since when the fogging is most pronounced. There must be something inside the car (possibly a silicone spray) that's causing this. Whatever it is, it hinders the drivers vision and is dangerous.
