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 stopped working right when warranty expired. No guard on air conditioner compressor resulting in easily damaged A/C component.

Air conditioner works only 1/4th of the time. It blows cold and then continues to blow but changes to blowing hot air. This is very problematic with the heat conditions of summer with small children in the car. We are looking at costly repairs due to faulty equipment from the manufacturer.

2006 Toyota Corolla ce has a problem with the A/C condenser on the 05/06 models that was built with a defect in the A/C condenser that causes it to lose pressure after 35000 miles. Toyota is charging at least $650 to repair this defect. Toyota tech. Service bulletin AC00-06. This needs to be a recall. Toyota is making a fortune off this built-in defect, due to so many of these Corollas on the road. Please force them to recall and fix/replace this built-in defect. Toyota is telling customers that it is a "rock" that did it and not covered on warranty. The part is in a spot where no foreign object can get to it. People can't afford these high bills on a brand-new car.
