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.

Film build up on inside windshield impedes driver's view. Explanation given, this is a result of an ozone effect combined with fumes and vapors of new car products and materials. No specific time frame for resolution but only that it should lessen as car is driven for an indefinite period of time. Solution given was to allow outside air circulation and continue to clean inside windshield frequently. Is there a health hazard by inhalation of occupants? visibility is affected regardless of time of day.
