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.

While driving the temperature gauge went hot. Consumer took the vehicle to a mechanic before the vehicle overheats. The dealership has serviced the vehicle 4 times for this issue, in which the thermostat, the water pump, the radiator and the intake gasket were replaced. However, the problem still exist.

When making turns and sometimes when you drive over a slight bump the heater fan will turn on by itself or if listening to the radio the station will change by itself. Also while driving the auto door locks will suddenly click.this vehicle has temperature and radio controls installed on steering wheel. When I brought the vehicle in to service the recall in regards to the air bag defect I informed the dealer of the problem thinking it may relate to the defective air bag wiring but I was told they had no idea what it was and were only required to fix the problem at hand which was the air bag inflater.

We replaced the fuel filter because it was clogged, however, we then had to have the engine control module replaced as well as the catalitic converter.
