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.

2003 Suzuki vitara. When parked in the garage or deep shadow, the night-time lights come on and do not change to day-time running lights when moved into sunlight unless the ignition is first turned off. When the day-time running lights are on if driven through deep shadow or to the North (shading the sensor) the night-time lights come on as well as the tail lights causing drivers behind me to brake. On two occaisions the drivers of the following car have made threatening gestures to me. The dealer has been unable to correct this problem even though they have saught help from the manufacturer. The dealer has told me that they have another customer with the same problem.
