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.

JUST a pain in the ass! I dont have nothing else to say besides that. Every car is a pain and you just have to be calm and be smarter than the technicians who put it together!

All the control levels on my AC use to work . . until now. After # 5 went out and of course I have been driving around in the Hot & Humid weather for the past month & this morning I had enough! It was so foggy and humid I was driving and wiping the windshield with a towel. Finally stuck my head out of the window so I could see. I took my car in to a local fix it shop and there great but found a bunch of other issues that I "should" fix.

Had to have the blower motor replace (not too bad) and also the resistor that goes with it (over $200!). Why can't these components be designed as simply as they were in the past? Does everything need to be computerized or digitalized?

A/C stopped working suddenly. Took it to the dealership (bad idea) and it cost me $345 for parts and labor. Happened during the winter so my defrost would not work at all nor did i have heat in my car. 15 degrees with no heat is no fun!

So my blower motor went out for a second time. This time I decided to just repair it myself. I tested the wiring to make sure that enough power was going to the motor which was fine so i bought a new motor and put it in. When i removed the old motor water actually poured out of it?! Not sure but this time instead of paying over $300 for the repair it only cost me $125. Hopefully this will be the last time as well. If anyone else has this problem i definitely recommend doing this yourself. The motor is right under the glovebox and extremely easy to replace.
