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.

I have had Toyota's many years and never had problems with their AC. This Scion Xb has a leak somewhere. I first had the Local Toyota dealer service the AC after it was blowing hot air and it was good for about a year. Then it did it again so I found what I thought was the leak and replaced some of the O rings. That lasted about 2 months. I took it to a shade tree mechanic and he found some more leaks on other O rings, so ''fair enough" I told myself, He found problem, it's fixed. About a month later the freon leaked again. So now I just buy a can and fill it up with freon whenever need be.
