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.

Bought car with frozen electric radiator fan. This has only been small issue as the car has a belt driven radiator fan also that keeps the engine within normal operating temperature (in fact, I didn't even know it had an electric fan until two years after owning the car). Only adverse effect is the engine compartment gets too hot for the A/C system causing it to fail (and also effected a different issue I reported about the clutch master cylinder failing).
