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.

Consumer was concerned with extreme heat build up in the passenger compartment next to the dog house, and also in the driver's compartment. The heat from the motor compartment was coming through the fire wall which seemed to be well insulated. However, the heat was still coming through, and causing great discomfort to occupants of vehicle. Consumer had been driving vehicle for about 4 or 5 hours in October of 2004, when he attempted to place a compact disc in the cd player he found that the dashboard was so hot that it caused him to drop the disc. Consumer was worried that touching dashboard would burn him or his wife. Heat was so intense that the compact disc would warp if he placed it in the player.
