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.

car would heat up because of exhaust system

The car would heat up. The radiator would coolant somehow, I would have to refill it. Not a huge problem. But the car would heat up so much that the fan would be turned on even after the car was shut off. I'm guessing there was a fix, I took it to a mechanic once and he changed the radiator cap or something, but that didn't fix the problem. Sometimes the temperature would go all the way to hot. In the winter it would be fine. In the end it stopped having that issue though somehow, I sold it, and later on found similar issues given by consumers on Edmunds.
