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 was a defect in the lighting and the adjustment caused low beams to create a glare to the oncoming traffic. The high and low beam filaments were in one bulb and the bulb was surrounded by a collar which may had contributed to the problem. When the low beams were on or when driving at night in rural areas, it looked as if a dark shade was pulled down making the lighted area only about 6 feet off of the ground throughout 180 degrees horizontally.
