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 ONLY COMPLAINT I HAVE ABOUT THIS CAR IS THAT I CANNOT GET ANY HEAT OUT OF THE VENTS . IT HAS DUAL CLIMATE CONTROL AND AT FIRST I HAD COOL AIR COMING OUT OF THE DRIVERS SIDE AND HOT AIR COMING OUT OF THE PASSENGER SIDE ,BEFORE THIS HAPPENED EVERYTHING WAS WORKING FINE . THEN THIS YEAR I LOST HEAT ALL TOGETHER AIR COND. WORKS FINE BUT ITS WINTER TIME .... I DON'T NEED AIR COND. RIGHT NOW I NEED HEAT. SOME OF THE LIGHTS ON THE CLIMATE CONTROL WENT OUT TOO, SO I DON'T KNOW WHETHER TO JUST GO TO CADILLAC FOR THE WHOLE CONTROL OR COULD IT BE SOMETHING IN THE BRAIN OF THE DASHBOARD THAT CONTROLS THE SWITCHING MECHANISM I DON'T TRUST TOO MANY PEOPLE TO WORK ON MY CAR AND AM AFRAID TO BE TAKEN OVER BY A MECHANIC OR WORSE CADILLAC I'M PRETTY HANDY, HAS ANYONE HEARD OF THIS PROBLEM OF MINE . PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN.
