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.

AC stopped working... took it to repair shop; they ran diagnostics, everything seemed fine, refrigerant, hoses, etc. Mechanic suggested trying to sauder something on the relay switch... which he did (but could not guarantee it)... worked for 2 weeks or so. Today, AC will sometimes work if the car has been on and driving for a while, but is not consistent.
