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.

The car has a terrible smell coming from the air conditioning unit. The car has been to the dealer on several occasions where they state that it's the 'filter' but the problem continues. This issue has never been fully resolved and is on-going. The car has other minor defects with the window operation (loud squealing as if the window is rubbing against something) and the dealer has failed to resolve that issue as well. I am concerned that the smell inside the car could be toxic and unsafe for my children. How can I get the dealer to test the air quality and quit replacing the filter as a temporary attempt to an ongoing problem?
