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.

The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Outlook. The contact stated the car has a defect in which the air conditioning hose does not drain properly. When the hose becomes clogged, the water drains into the dash area of the car, filling the blower motor with water the water, when saturated, leaks inside the car, onto the flooring. The water then sits in electrical components and soaks the floor padding and other wires alongside the flooring. The problem has been noted on other Saturn Outlooks. The problem however, is not noted in the owner's manual as something that requires maintenance (nor is maintenance suggested). The dealership the contact has taken the vehicle to for service since it was purchased, did note that it is a problem, and needs regular flushing. They quoted a price of $1500. Updated 08-16-12
