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.

  • 184,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Buick Rendezvous. The contact stated that while driving 25 mph the contact smelled fuel inside of the vehicle. The contact stated the fuel gauge was defective and fuel was leaking from the fuel tank due to a failed fuel neck. The vehicle was taken to a mechanic for a diagnostic test. The mechanic noticed a NHTSA campaign I.D. 07E021000 (fuel system, other: Storage: Tank assembly: Pressure relief devices) and suggested the contact to call the manufacturer. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who did not offer any assistance since the vehicle had surpassed the statue of limitations. The failure mileage was 184,000.

Fuel leaking externally at the gas tank inlet check valve. GM and dealer have determined existing recall for this condition does not apply to my vehicle, even though the symptoms I'm experienced are exactly those detailed in the recall, and my VIN falls within the applicable range provided for the recall. This is a very unsafe condition. NHTSA campaign id number: 07V349000 GM recall # 06230A.
