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.

Ref erence to complaint ODI id number : 10133193. On hot days we are experiencing the same problem as well. This problem has happened more than once. The garage that we take the vehicle to has not been able to duplicate the problem or figure out as to what was wrong with it. Also the vehicle to a dealer, where they have hooked up some sort of recording device, but of course the problem didn't appear. When it did happen we had to wait at least one hour to three for it to finally crank over. We have spent money on the possible fixes, but to no avail. The problem with the heat continued to occur.
