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.

tC 4-cyl

2006 Scion Tc, the A/C on this car (still under warranty) stopped cooling. I took it to the Scion dealer I purchased the vehicle from, and they advised me that a pebble or rock had hit the condenser unit and caused a crack, allowing refrigerant to leak out. The repair will be over $1000, and I was advised that this is considered a road hazard which isn't covered under warranty. I believe (as many others do) that this is a design flaw, which should be covered under warranty.
