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.

When set to heat on vent, heat does not flow like it does when it is blowing cold air. When the heater is put in bi-level position it becomes extremely loud and sounds like the air cant get out when put in heat setting. When it is extremely cold the car does not heat properly. Have had this problem looked at 3 separate times, 1st incident told that this was normal, second said they "fixed" it after a meltdown (smelled plastic burning) in the heater controls, now saying there was a tsb related to this problem that they were not aware of and will follow it accordingly. If not, we are seeking help via lemon laws.

I am not happy with the heater in my 2003 Rendezvous. I have been to my dealer, talked tobuick and also a field rep.(david brie?) I am not happy with answers I have been given. I am not the only one that feels there is a problem. When the heater is put in bi-level position it becomes extremely loud and sounds like the air cant get out when put in heat setting. When put to cold setting the air flows freely. All my other past vehicles never had this problem and when it is extremely cold the car does not heat properly.
