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 contact owns a 2004 Toyota Corolla. The contact attempted to close the front drivers side window and it began to move very slowly until the window dislodged from the door panel and broke. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the window was replaced under warranty. Approximately one year later the failure recurred and the contact had the window replaced by an independent mechanic. Approximately four years later the failure recurred but the window was stuck in the open position inside of the door panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the regulator failed. The dealer could not repair the vehicle under the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 08V162000, visibility:glass, side/rear. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 30,000 and the current mileage was 82,000.
