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.

The circuit board that regulates the temperature control does not work. This problem in the beginning was intermittent but we never reported it until some time between Jan. 2002 to present. They claim that the board is defective but it would cost us aroung $ $500 to be replaced. We believe that a car with less than 35000 miles should not have this problem.

Horn & air bag modules connected to same fuse. Horn does not work. Told by manufacturer it meets all specs. Need to hit horn in certain location which causes eye to leave road in order to do so. Was given instructions on hitting horn.
