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.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles


Last year the blower motor quit working and we had several mechanics check it out, but they could not find a reason for the problem. Had it fixed and it happened again this year so we had no A/C for a while. Found a mechanic who asked if the passenger side floor was wet. Yes it was wet, and he replaced the motor and it works again, but every time it rains the passenger floor is wet. We know it's going to burn out again unless the windshield is replaced and sealed correctly. Has anyone had this same problem?

All in all it has been a really good car. But having to replace that blower motor can be a bitch. I managed to get 2 of them fairly cheap from a salvage yard but neither one of those lasted. They want a fortune for them at a dealer. I can't afford it.
