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.

i love my buick but this problem is awful, i have had this problem repair twice. the first time it was the coldest day of the year an i went to start my car for it colud warm up went back into the building, when i came out my windows were still frosted and my car was cold as you know what. the next time i was in ga on vacation 100 degrees and no air at all. i had this problem repaired two times already and i be damn if in january the damn thing went out again. i've paid about $700 already and i am sick and tired of not having air or heat when its needed the most. so now it dec. and i have no heat so bacislly me and my children freeze every morning till i get another $300 to $400 to repair this problem again and hope it last more than 4 months. i love buick but this problem is to costly i hate to do it but im going to have to get a reliable car that i wont freeze nor burn up in

This is time #3 for this same issue. Buy the part, tear apart the dash and fix it myself or it would cost a large amount of cash. JUNK
