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.

We did not know this was a manufacturers defect till our IMG went out. We live outside of Sacramento, Ca.,and went a year with no AC till we could get fixed!! My kids were sweltering!!!! I think it's too late to complain to GM, I am still trying to get them to pay for the IMG!!

There is a GM service bulletin that says" when replacing the condenser do not replace one of the bottom bracket bolts" this will prevent it from cracking again.

If you take your vehicle to a service station that is not up on service bulletins you will be replacing the condenser again like I had to only one and half years after I replaced the original. I also recommend you get a rebuilt condenser for half the price of a new one if you are looking to save a few bucks. If money is not a concern take it to the dealer because their parts are warrantied for life.
