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.

Disconnected ac drain hose caused leak under passenger-side carpets. Humidity issues/dangerous driving conditions. Caused serious fogging on windows repeatedly over 4 years. Could not find source of problem until we took apart car and lifted carpet. Could become a serious mold issue. Odd smell in ventilation system. We believe it came this way from the factory and was possibly knocked loose when the carpeting was installed. It was an on going problem. We sterilized it and aired it out for a few days with a high powered fan. Had to remove the seat to get to it and glove box. Not easy. Problem rectified now. No humidity issues. Changed cabin filter. No more bad odors when using the defroster. Dealer was not helpful.
