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.

Both headlights went out at 11 p.m. on a dark highway. There was no warning. They just stopped lighting up. The techs at the dealership found no short circuit. One tech told me it was "not uncommon" for this to happen. This is a dangerous situation.
