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 air conditioner problem has been ongoing for a number of years. I have had the car into the dealership but they can't find anything wrong with it. When it was still under warranty they could not find anything wrong with it. The problem has gotten progressively worse but I did not want to shell out big bucks to get it fixed. I'm sure they will find the problem now that the car is way out of warranty!

It's terrible in the heat of the summer driving on the highway and the air goes off. Ends up being a very uncomfortable drive.
