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.

I continually noticed that the air vents express a very smelly odor. Whether it is the air conditioner or the heater- makes no difference. Went to the dealer and they said it was the air conditioner residue and to run my fan on vent to get rid of the moisture buildup. I have done this for a couple weeks now and they still smell like mold and mildew- I have only had this car for 60 days and can't get rid of the smell. I have allergies and this is a real problem for me. I have had many cars over the years and never experienced this every happening with the air condition in a vehicle. Have there been any complaints of this problem"is there warranty coverage for this or do I need to go back to the dealership and lodge a complaint to get rid of the car"
