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.

I guess I'm getting "new" heat! lol and whats funny is that the rest of the system as far as blend door continues to fail as well. what the fricken what?!?!?! and that you have to completely remove the dash. genius fricken idea!!!! way to go Detroit!!!!!!!
