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 stated while driving 65 mph on a major highway, the sun visors were too small and would not provide flexibility to adjust and reflect the sun. The vehicle had to be pulled over to avoid an accident. The manufacturer was contacted and determined they were aware of the problem which would be referred to their engineering department and could be remedied in future models.

I was walking through a parking lot when the Prius I was behind backed up into me (I moved quickly away and was not injured). I did not know the car was about to back up because it made no noise. I did not even know it was on. I don't know why I didn't notice any backup lights, probably because it was a bright sunny day. I would like, as a pedestrian, to be able to hear that a car is running and about to move.
