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.

There is a vent for my defroster/heater/air conditioner-on top of the dash--that does not work. I have a friend, that has the same model car. She too has the same problem. It seems like a defect. My windshield keeps icing up and gets foggy.

While driving at any speed heater did not work. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, and heater was replaced. Also, on two different occasions dealer replaced wiring harness and connection wires. On another occasion entire brake light assembly was replaced along with the sockets. In all, vehicle had been to the dealer six times in seven months.
