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.

Ac compressor failure. I see several forum online of customers with the same problem. Compressor will run fine for 15 minutes then blows hot air. I took the car back once before directly after purchase because it made a lot of noise when the ac was running. They said it was 'normal'. it also blows a white cloud back into the car that trigger my asthma.

2007 Kia Rondo - engine pulley failure. Had started car, and was leaving a parking lot crossing 3 lanes of traffic and had no steering control. Vehicle has been assessed and is currently in repair waiting for a part. Had I been on a freeway, overpass, etc., especially with my children in the vehicle, this could have been catastrophic. Please investigate.
