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.

When I run my ac it leaks on the floor of the drivers side. It leaks so much it runs to the back seat floorboard too.

Eclipse 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Air conditioning refrigerant pipe needs to be replaced. It is almost sitting on top of the radiator bracket and moves onto the bracket with normal vibrations of the car. The air has been slowly getting warmer until it finally quit altogether; I was told that anyone could have moved the pipe over and caused it to be on the bracket.
