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.

H3 5-cyl

  • 63,000 miles
Smell of burning plastic and the A/C stopped blowing. The A/C works on the lower speeds. Burnt/melted plug on the A/C resistor plug. From what I have found online this is a very common problem with H3's at about 40-60K miles. Why wont GM do a recall if this is a daily problem with H3 owners. How many H3's have caught fire from this " it was over a 110 degrees when mine went out. What if I had young child or an elderly person in the vehicle at that temp "
