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.

problem #1

ABS Light and Brake Light came on as AC shut off one evening. It was on for about 20-30 seconds, then disappeared and my AC worked. The actual performance of the car did not change (brakes and accelerator worked fine). I did a little online research and saw this problem occurs often and the windows don't work. The next time I was driving, the same thing happened and my windows wouldn't work. Again, it was only 20-30 seconds at a time. Took it into the shop and they reset the board which connects all the warning lights. About a week later in 103 degree heat in the middle of the day, it happened again, but this time for about 5 minutes. Then it went off again as usual. After I parked the car a while and got back in, the AC and windows would not work and the ABS/Brake lights were off. It took a while for the AC and windows to start working. It did this twice today.

I don't know what to do. After reading several solutions (checking out ABS system, replacing ignition, etc) and seeing how many of them don't hold up, I guess I'm just going to install a cooler with lots of ice just in case.

This car has been great for the 3 years I've owned it (from 50K miles) but considering all the issues which began around 95K, I am seriously thinking about buying a different car.
