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.

08/21/2000, we had the syatem flushed out at the dealer, within two weeks we had to replace the heater core. There was an oily build up in the water, and the service manger (curtis medford) said it was a chemical reaction between the coolant and engine block. Now we're having to replace another heater core. About four months or longer, I had written NHTSA about this, and as of today(08/19/2001), I haven't heard anything from them. We can't afford to keep putting hater cores in this car every four to six months. The service manger also said that it was causing the coolant to rust. I would like someone to help us with this matter. You can contact me this week at home (828-652-9664) or connie at work (828-584-9753). The car is also listed in her name too.
