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 right radiator fan stopped working and needs to be replaced. I'm just going to get a new car instead of dealing with all the issues.

Well I was driving and all of a sudden my car was overheating and it turned off. I let it cool, I turned it back on then I was turning around to go back home and it was overheating again & it did the same thing, shut down. I let it cool but now it will not start. I don't have the money to take it to the shop. I need to know what I should do to fix it. Before it ran great it never overheated on me before.
