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 electric system seems to be defective, because always something related to it is out of work. Frequently it is reflected in the air conditioning. For instance, the last time the air condition (A/C) was repaired, that repairman left the claxon and the rear defrost out of work. The A/C has been repaired too many times that it does not fit with a new vehicle. Nowadays it is out of work again. I fear that next time is the lights to be off when just driving. In incident date, next data required in this scheme, I am putting the last repair in the dealer.
