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.

It was discovered by Grease Monkey, had to flush it twice because in Texas only put water in when they replaced the radiator. Now it's rusty again, built up in the overflow and needs another flush already. It's the newest vehicle I've ever owned and by far the worst and most problematic.

They have had a lot of problems with the bad gaskets that they were getting to put on the engines and I think that was the problem. I have heard a lot of people complain about the same problem on the votec engine.

i have heard the dex coolant is causing problems with radiators, manifold caskets and heater core. I have also heard there was a law suite so why weren't informed about this! So now who is going to pay for my damages to my car because i sure don't have the money to pay for this! $800.00 --- $2500.00. if anyone knows how to handle this problem email me!
