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.

Hose disconnected from the gas filter caused gasoline to leak from the vehicle. The consumer managed to reconnect the hose to the filter which temporarily remedied the problem. At a repair shop, a new filter was installed when the mechanic installed the fuel filter. Consumer noticed the connection from the rubber hose to the filter was only a plastic snap and not a solid connection like the other end of the filter that goes to the engine. Consumer felt the plastic snap could snap again and cause serious or deadly injuries.
