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.

I have a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer It really has been a good car for me and my family. I just have this problem that started again I had it fixed 2 times about 3 years ago when it was under warranty they fixed the Actuator motor for the heating and air. It made this noise in the back of the car like a heart beat as my son says it is so annoying. I called the dealer they said it will cost me about $800 to fix so I looked up the part they put in and its only about $60 or less. So I'm thinking if I order the part and take it to a mechanic and have them put it in.
