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.

We had noticed a slight coolant smell for a period of time, but could not find a leak. Engine fan would run on for several minutes after an extended drive of 20-30 miles. Eventually the A/C stopped blowing cool air on a 90+ degree day. We suspected a A/C compressor failure and took the car to an independent shop for repairs. Mechanic reported that A/C was fine, but radiator was dry. He recommend a complete replacement. Once replaced, A/C was working fine again, and have not noticed the coolant smell since.
