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.

Heat/ac will only blow from defrost vents. I have asked many mechanics about this issue. Some of them tell me its a vacuum line, others say is is the switch, and other say its a relay.

Heat/AC has no mid point setting. Causes the air to be either very hot or very cold, I am constantly having to adjust while driving.
