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.

My air conditioning has never been cool on my vehicle, especially in extremely hot weather. I took it in to the dealership several times with the result being there is nothing wrong with it. Finally on the 4th of July it stopped working completely. It was blowing hot air. We took it to the dealership again and they said that the compressor had been failing for some time. Metal shavings had come off and clogged the condenser and filter. The dealership replaced the compressor and the condenser. The air conditioning still is not really cold, but at least it isn't hot.
