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.

When I step on the brakes, sometimes I get a warning on my dashboard to check brake lights, when I check, I get the warning whenever the left and right brake lights do not light up, and only the center does. If I press multiple times they may work. I found a similar recall on the 2002 model, I have the 2001 model the number is 04V051000.

: while braking the check brake lights warning illuminates. There is a NHTSA recall, # 04V051000, regarding the brake lights. The vehicle has the same problems as indicated in the recall; however, it is not included in the recall due to the VIN. Updated 5/10/2006 - the right and left brake lights did not work, only the center brake light worked.
