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 driver side mirror showed signs of discoloration, the dealer installed a new mirror, at that time the dealer installed the wrong type of mirror and they replaced it. The knob used to adjust this same mirror broke and was replaced as well, also the passenger side rear window would not go up or down.
