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.

There was a campaign number 14V-542. For Cts-V recently not for Cts for the same problem. We had no alarm indicating that fuel pump was faulty. After verification at the dealer we were told the fuel pump module melted. They did not understand why the car did not catch on fire. The only indication we had was a strong smell of gasoline. The garage replaced fuel pump module and connection.
