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 wire that connects to the air conditioner is too short and will intermittently cause the ac to kick in. When the ac kicks in this will cause the vehicle to surge forward. There is a technical service bulletin about this problem, but the manufacturer will not do any thing about it.
