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 know A.c. doesn't last forever. This is the second time it needs fixing in 11 years, so maybe that's not so bad. At about 7 years, the fan went out on all but the highest fan setting. Then, despite the addition of Freon within the past 12 months, there is NO cooling whatsoever. Don't know yet if there's a Freon leak or if the entire a.c. needs replacing or what. This a.c. has never run as cool or as quickly as my partner's 2004 Toyota Corolla, which provides almost INSTANT cooling.
