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 not fixed this problem yet but I will have to soon because the car is trying to overheat. I also have a problem with the gauge -it's dropping down to the c as well. I have noticed when the gauge drops down the fan comes on...not sure what's going on with it. I wish I had found this site before buying this car. Most of the things I have found wrong with the car I have seen complaints on here.

Here I am again typing another complaint about this car. I hate to talk so badly about it because I have always wanted to own one. I wish I had found this site sooner like in 2006. Anyways, I have to always turn my air on to make the fun begin turning. Of course, if I don't the car will overheat and there's another problem. I just wish I could get in the car like normal people and not worrying about turning the air on immediately for the fan. Like stated in another complaint of mines I can't really tell by looking at the temperature gauge because it don't work either so I am stuck with this car until I get another one. Don't get me wrong if this car didn't have the problems......many many problems that I am having it would definitely be an okay car.
