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.

Actuator for split climate control (drive/passenger) blows hot when A/C is on and temperature shows that cab should be cool. This has happened several times since I bought the truck.

Thermostat defective and replaced at 5-6,000 miles. Waterpump went at 40,000 miles. Parts were replaced by dealer. Water pump replaced by my mechanic at my cost. 40,000 miles seems like a low amount for a waterpump.
