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 heater fan in the car would only work on high speed. It was a continual occurrence, therefore it was difficult to control the interior heat and defroster. It was repaired by replacing the speed control switch. The mechanic showed me what had failed on the switch were two receptacles where the metal was should have been solid but had gotten so hot that it had melted and there was no longer a connection. I felt compelled to report this as it concerned me that it may cause a fire.
