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.

Caller bought a used vehicle from an armored car company. The air conditioner had a bad compressor. Ford offered no help because they did not work on van conversions. The company consumer bought the van sent him to an air conditioning company. They said the entire air conditioner compressor had to be replaced. The vehicle was taken back 12 times because it blew hot air. The air conditioner company returned the money the armored car company paid to fix it, and will offer no more help. The armored car company referred the caller to another air conditioner company, and they repaired the new system. Now the air conditioner is broken again. They have replaced the compressor. The caller had to pay for the repair. Manufacturer has offered no help.
