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.

Climate control system. On three occasions the climate control system has switched to heat and high fan, locking the driver out of the controls and causing the passenger compartment to become extremely hot and uncomfortable. I was able to pull over to the side of the road on one occasion, turn the engine off and let the car sit for a few minutes before restarting the car. The system returned to normal. On two of the three occasions, the car was in motion. On one occasion it happened in the garage. Dash lights - while driving at night, all passenger compartment lights went off for about 30 seconds, and then came back on. I took the car to the local dealer and they checked the system, including the battery. They found no computer codes to explain the malfunction.
