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.

There is a foul odor from the heat/ac vents after only 4 months of use. The car is clean from head to toe so I couldn't figure out what could have caused the smell. I took it in to be serviced and they preformed a tsb to remove the odor. It then smelled like a musky lemon. A month later the foul odor is back, not sure what is causing it but not very pleased with the brand new funk aroma. I'm going to have to take it back in again.
