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.

I have noticed that my windshield wipers have been deteriorating in the past months. I brought my car to a VW dealer back in April to see why my windshield wipers were stuttering. They said the windshield might be on too tight or something wrong with the blades. I changed the blades and got a new windshield since I had a crack in it anyways. Both did not resolve the problem and I was never told it could be the wiper motor. I have had a few instances where I was driving now on the highway or just on a side street and it was raining and all of a sudden my wipers would just stop!!! I almost got into a few accidents now, and I feel it is a huge safety hazard that I shouldn't be responsible for.
