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.

A chemical smell that can become so strong that it makes me light headed and nauseated comes from my air vents. I have brought it in twice and the dealer claims they can't smell anything. After they are through and I or my husband get in the car we can smell it. I feel like the dealer is lying about being able to smell it because the car is still under warranty and they don't want to fix it for free.. I have to ride with the windows down or freeze when it is cold because I cant turn on the vents w/O resulting in this horrible smell. It happens all the time.
