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 car is only 5 years old and now the compressor and condenser are broken and need to be replaced. Seem like GM products aren't holding up very well. I had to have freion added last year because the ac wouldn't work and again this year.

Driving down I5 during a downpour when the drivers side windshield wiper went off the side of the windshield. Skirted trafficto bring the car to the side of the road and moved the wiper back onto the windshield. Wipers would no longer work. Towed off interstate to the nearest dealership where they stated the wiper transmission was "broken" and they replaced it.
