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.

Outlook 6-cyl

At around 50K my 2008 Saturn Outlook air conditioning system stopped working. The air conditioner would not blow cold air at all. A local dealership cleaned and sanitized the system and checked for leaks and re-filled with freon. The system worked for a couple of days as far as blowing cold air but not as well as before. I returned the car for them to look at again, they used a new machine to check for leaks and pressure checks, refilled with freon again. This time it worked for a day and has not worked since. After the second time, I was informed it was a compressor issue and it would be at least $1000. This seems extremely early for an air conditioner to go out, it was just out of warranty, of course.
