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 contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Venture. The air conditioning system failed while in use. The dealer stated that the air compressor was replaced. However, the failure recurred. The dealer stated that the gasket seals needed to be replaced. The fuel gauge no longer indicated how much fuel was in the vehicle. The dealer stated that the sensor in the fuel tank had to be replaced. Also, there was a shortage in the driver's side turn signal, causing the signal to fail. The dealer repaired the signal. Yet it failed repeatedly. The current and failure mileage were 85000.

The contact stated temperature gauge was going up and down. The dealer told him the thermometer was not working. He picked up the car and in 3 three days later the car blew up. He had it towed a week later they told him a new engine was needed. It has been 5 weeks since he took the vehicle to the dealer, they still have not fixed it. On the 2nd day after he bought the car the air conditioner was not working.

Air conditioner condenser leaked. The consumer was told by a local repair shop that there were about a thousand of these condensers replaced in the last months. The condenser leaked from the lower left side from a faulty weld.
