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.

This is as much a question as an actual report. Driver's sideview mirror has tremendous blind spot - conversely - a small viewing area. Typically a conscientious driver, I have cut off 2 or more drivers that just weren't visible to me. I think this should be reviewed. Perhaps this is my own problem, but I've never had this problem with a car in the past. My belief is that the sideview mirror should be more concave - or at least provide a larger viewing area.
