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 rear window or rear hatch glass is severlydefected such that viewing through the rear view mirror or directly through the glass is substantially impaired. The defect creates a terrible danger on rainy nights when it is impossible to view through the window trafic as it approaches because the glass is deformed in such a way that it blurrs the headlights and or environment lights such as; street lights. You are unable to judge whether the other car is going to pass or will be able to stop in time to prevent a collision.
