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.

Sun visor on driver side interferes with rear view mirror. When visor is pulled down, it hits the rear view mirror, causing the mirror to move up or down. On sunny days when constantly moving visor, the rear view mirror is a continual problem needing readjustment and causing driver to take eyes off the road.

Approximately 45 days ago (Aug. 27, 2003) I purchased a 2004 Toyota camray Solara. The auto is equipped with a low tire pressure warning system. On day one, the system alerted me of low tire pressure. I took the vehicle back to the dealership at it was fixed. The following morning, I noticed moisture condensation on the inside. I turned on the ac and it disappeared. For the second time, the low pressure indicator was on and I again returned the car to the dealership. The dealerships service department checked the tires, informed me that all the tires must have the same pressure, and showed me the reset switch under the dash. A week later, after a rain storm, the car carpets were wet. I returned the car to the dealer and after a day, the car was returned and I was admonished to ensure that I didn't leave the car windows open. At the end of that week, there was another heavy rain storm and my car remained parked for that entire weekend, "with the windows closed." On Sunday, September 14th, I entered the car and once again, the floor mats were soaked and there was a musty/moldy smell in the car. On the following Monday (9/15) I returned the car to the dealer. This time, after a day, the service department told me that there was a reported problem of water leaking and that I would have to return the car later in the week to have the dashboard removed and the leaking part replaced/repaired. And, once again, the low tire pressure indicator was on. My car is still not totally repaired and the low tire pressure light is on again. The dealer now has possession of my car for almost as much time as I have. I am waiting for the next rain storm and I?M afraid to wash my car. In addition, there are mold and mold spores growing in the vehicle, which is aggravating my asthma.
