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 had the AC compressor go out, which of course means no cold air. Living in San Diego isn't as bad as some desert areas, but you still want cool air in the summer! Of course the mechanics tell me it's a dual compressor, making it more expensive, about $900 with labor and parts. It's winter now, but when the weather heats up in a few months, it's going to get annoying again! If anyone has any tips on getting it replaced cheaper, please let me know!
