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.

Along with my blend door problems, the water pump started leaking at 28k miles. I replaced it myself at a cost of about $50 for the new pump. At least the water pump was an easy fix compared to the blend door in the HVAC system. But come on, the water pump fails at 28,000 miles? I am very easy on my truck and only drive about 5k miles a year, all servicing is done as scheduled.
