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.

S-10 Pickup LS 4.3L V6

It gets 110 degrees Fahrenheit here in central Louisiana. I'm a young man, so I don't mind rolling the widows down because I can handle the heat. But if I have to get dressed up, all I have is a crappy little fan in my truck to stir around blistering air. Something has to be done about this.

The heat. on the other-hand, works almost too well. If I barely touch the thermostat, it'll send scorching heat into the cab.

This unit is an electrical nightmare. I hope the CEO's of chevy are enjoying the savings they are seeing using third world labor and materials in their vehicles. I think they should be run out of the country. No Bail out from my tax dollars. Until they bring the manufacturers of their auto's back home, I'll be buying Ford Products. Thanks Chevy..
