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.

My A/C evaporator has been hissing and Dodge says it was normal during my warranty period but now I find it was not the case and also about the odor that came with it. The driver side window stick in the up position but you never know when, boy I will tell you Dodge sure did pick the right name, even when they know there are these problems and even issued extended warranties for Intrepids 93-97 up to 7 years...meaning"??" A/C evaporators are suppose to last at least 7 years....well ours isnt lasting even 3 years!! worst car I have ever bought and it was not cheap.

Hissing noise from front right section of vehicle that repeats every 15-20 seconds while A/C is engaged. Fan is set on the lower 2 levels. Dealer believes it the opening/closing of a vacuum door, but has unable to correct in 4 visits which includes 2 tsbs (10/98 & 6/99). Noise is more prominent after car interior has cooled off from its hottest level or at night. But it does occurs at all times. This becomes quite annoying and stressful on longer trips.
