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.

We don't know what is wrong with the overheating. Sometimes it gets hot fast like a few blocks from home and dies in the middle of the road and sometimes it will make it 50 miles away and back with NO problems but we never know when that is. Antifreeze comes out the overflow hose every time it leaks,sometimes it doesn't cause the car to overheat but it mostly does. Replaced thermostat, water pump, tons of overflow tank caps, overflow tank itself, put in a stop leak, ran diagnostics, and been to countless mechanics who have no idea what is wrong. Never know when the car is going to decide to quit working and leave me stranded, these problems make me hate this car and can't fix it because we can't find any answers for it.
