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 Air-Conditioner quits when it is hot outside, now that the temp. has dropped here the Defogger keeps fogging the windshield up. When you start the truck it is okay but when heat starts flowing the fog starts and keeps going making it impossible to drive without a lot of wiping the windows and is dangerous. Could the system have a leak somewhere causing this to happen or maybe a bad heater core. We have had the truck for years but when we take it to the shop to have it looked at no-one can ever detect a problem let alone fix it.
