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.

problem #2

I was issued a recall a few years back specific to my vehicle about a blower motor operation malfunction. It stated that settings on the blower motor may not function properly. For example, when I turn on the air or heat I have settings for 5 blower motor options. All the settings 1-4 work just fine, setting 5 does not work at all. When I set HVAC to setting 5 no air blows out. I have since then misplaced that recall notice. If you have any information on this recall can you please get in contact with me thank you

My heating and air conditioning system does not function correctly. It has a mind of its own. It adjusts itself from hot to cold, cold to hot. It adjusts itself from low to high, high to low. Occasionally when I shut of the truck and take the key out the heating/cooling system will remain on. I can't drive in cold weather particularly in the morning or when its raining afraid that my defroster/defogger wont work because of the problem.
