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.

Repeated failure of headlamps, selector switch (lights go out), and turn signal. I need to continuously apply pressure to the selector switch in order to keep the lights on - this makes driving unsafe.

  • Manual transmission
  • miles
When driver turned on the directional signal light switch to make a turn either left or right, the turn signal switch won't return to place unless the consumer did it manually or made a wider turn. Also, when the light is being used to turn to left, consumer has to turn to right so the blinking light can stop.
