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.

Complaint 1: hood latch problem!!! this is the same problem GM vehicles have been having for at least 25 years!!!!! the hood will not release unless you pull the release lever and pound on the hood. You would think they would borrow or use Ford system of better parts!!!!-----complaint 2: the door panels have a weak area where the knee comes into contact with it on turns, mine cracked real bad!!! complaint 3: main complaint:--the heater core started leaking and fogged my windshield up so bad I had to pull over to the side of the road. Could have caused a bad accident!!! I was in heavy traffic on hwy. 69 at mcalester ok. And had to pull off and wound up cutting the hoses and splicing to keep from running into heater core, this was on labor day 2003. I need to know if this is a problem the carmaker will correct for me for free. I know that heater cores should last at least 10 years if not more. This caused me a lot of problems!!!! I checked into a new heater core at 2 auto parts stores, auto-zone and O'reilley's and they both said it was unavailable."???" please help me with this. Thank you, reggie holland.
