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.

Car overheated while sitting at Idle, as I bought it used I didn't realize the higher then normal temperatures while idling was not normal. Dealership told us the fan needed to be replaced. About $400.00 including labor..

Found out later (via an online website) this seems to be a recurring problem and its due to premature wear of the DC motor brushes ($50 to be replaced.)
