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.

I'M USUALLY THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT LOVES TO JUST CRUISE AROUND WITH HER WINDOWS DOWN IN THE SUMMER TIME. WHEN THOSE EXTREME HEATS HIT I DEFINITELY WANTED TO CRANK ON THE A/C AND COOL DOWN. BUT A FEW TIMES THIS SUMMER, WHEN I DECIDED TO RUN THE A/C, IT JUST KEPT PUSHING OUT REALLY HOT AIR.. SO I JUST SHUT IT OFF. AND ONLY A COUPLE TIMES I TURNED IT ON AND AFTER A MINUTE IT WORKED JUST FINE! I FIGURE THAT THE A/C WAS JUST NEEDING A RECHARGE?!
