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.

A/C system keeps going out. Took vehicle to dealer 4/14/2006. Dealer stated there was no leak & system just needed to be charged. Stopped cooling again. Took in to dealer 5/24/2007. Dealer stated that there was no problem with the system - it just needed to be recharged again. I told them that A/C should not have to be charged annually, especially since vehicle was 2004 model. Questioned them about the A/C compressor replacement NHTSA item #10010459 - said my car did not have any problems with A/C compressor. Offered to split cost of recharge with me because they said it could not be turned in on warranty again. A/C quit cooling again 9/07/2007.
