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 heater cores on these birds deteriorate over time. Foggy windows at first, wet floormats later.

When you get the replacement, ask for a "grounding strip" to be added to help with the longevity.

The problem won't go away, try and deal with it as soon as you can.

The part is cheap, the labor is intensive because the dash needs to be taken apart.
