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 own a preowned 1998 mistubishi Diamante ls. When the climate control, particularly the heater is engaged, the smell of anti-freeze becomes quite apparent. Dealer claimed 2 years ago when I bought it that it was the smell of the chemicals used to clean the car during "make-ready." Ethylen glycol fumes are toxic and this is a reoccuring defect in this model car from posts I have seen on various websites. I was later told that to fix this problem will cost close to $1000 since the car is out of warranty. Mitsubish issued a tsb addressing this problem, obviously they are aware of it. In addition, the windshield is covered with a film that cannot be washed off from this leak. A recall should be issued for this problem, I am not the first person to file this complaint on your website. Thank you.
