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.

Heater fan motor is inoperative. Dealer contacted. Conusmer received recall notice 99M07. Consumer took vehicle in to dealer. The dealer wouldn't authorize the work because the problem depicted in the recall was still working. Now that it is inoperative the dealer won't fix because the vehicle is over mileage. The defroster is also inoperable.
