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.

Driving down interstate. Started making a sound like a leaf caught in the cabin fan. Next thing I saw was a puff of white/blue smoke in the mirror which turned out to be the freon. No warning light, nothing. Freon is a lubricant in these but apparently, the compressors sieze up sometimes. No indication of this before hand. I think the smoke out the back was my $1700. No of course the timing belt is due and the brakes are worn. Would sell it if I could....
