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.

I do not love FRESH AIR especially in August when it's quite moist! The air on this car has now crapped out on me each summer until 2006 when I treated myself to a new summer car. Now I've given up on fixing this each year and only drive it in the winter when I can at least dress warmer if the heater decides to follow the A/C. I've put more money in to this system than the car is worth and am only keeping it to punish my first born once she drives. These Cavaliers are the cockroach of cars and refuse to die (mechanically) and easy to fix so we keep letting it live in our driveway.
