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.

The consumer was attempting to brake when he realized that something was obstructing the pedal. He managed to release the obstruction and pulled over to see what it was. It appeared to be a piece of the air duct which somehow came loose. The consumer took the part to the dealer so they could determine what it was and where it came from. The dealer determined that the part wasn't vital to the operation of the vehicle therefore the consumer didn't have it replaced/fixed. The consumer has the part in his possession.

Odometer information is shown as black figures on a dark tan field.under certain lighting conditions, because the instrument panel is shrouded in its well. The figures cannot be read. To get a reading, the driver has to take his eyes off road for several seconds, & at highway speeds, this becomes a safety hazard. The solution is simple. First use black on white as was always done & change the configuaration of the instrument panel so all instruments will be visible under all lighting conditions.
