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.

Okay, so I thought my AC was low on Freon for some reason so I had a licensed friend add two cans. Then the NEXT summer I had to do it again. I thought it was strange but again had my friend add more cans of air. Third summer, I had the same issue. Now, I took it to my wonderful mechanic and had them check it out. It turns out that the evaporator core and another part of the A/C system that I can't remember the name of it and can't find my estimate. The estimate was over $1000 to fix my A/C problems!
