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 contact owns a 2009 Honda Civic. The contact turned on the air conditioner but only warm air would blow through the vents. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop where the contact was told the condenser under the vehicle was dented and punctured. The contact was also told that the hoses were disconnected and leaking fluids. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was unknown. Updated 6/8/11 the repair informed the consumer something may have hit the ac unit. Updated 06/16/11

The air conditioner on my brand new 2009 Honda Civic stopped working. When I got it serviced, they said it was a hole in the condenser. This is not covered under the warranty when it should be.
