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 found out that the car really isn't meant to be driven in the winter. When it is below freezing and especially when it's really cold the engine doesn't run that well. It takes a while for it to warm up. This car was never meant to be driven during the winter so it is not surprising that it does not drive good in the winter.
