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.

Cobalt 4-cyl

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt. While parked, the contact activated the windshield defroster, but it would not emit sufficient air to the windshield. The vehicle was taken to dealer for diagnostics where the technician was unable to diagnose the failure because the defroster was functioning intermittently when it was inspected. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 59,900. Updated 02/01/12

Front windshield keeps fogging up, and not during any certain temperature. Defrost is used to dissipate problem however it is an annoyance. While driving one rainy evening I almost had an accident due to this condition, and I consider having good night vision.
