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 problem as described in bulletin #990602012D occured with my coolant system on the incident date. I had the whole system flushed and new coolant added. On 5/21/03, I had the coolant system flushed again and new dex-cool added. As of today's date 7/14/03, I noticed while having problems with my air conditioning, which may be related, that the dex-cool is almost completly emptied out of the over-flow. I think there is something significantly wrong with the coolant system and needs to be recalled!!! a 5-year antifreeze shouldn't only last 2 months.

Consumer recently had vehicle serviced concerning collant corrosion, consumer was advised that the reservoir for the collant was rusted and instead of an orange color it was a greenish color, therefore coolant had to be flushed out and new coolant added.
