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.

Strong smell of gasoline was coming from the car while driving and while stationary. Took car to be checked out and learned that a crack and leak was in the plastic supply line of the fuel pump module. This caused fuel to spill and settle on top of the fuel tank which created a dangerous condition and possible fire.

CTS 6-cyl

  • 85,000 miles
While driving on the interstate, during a violent rain storm, my cars check engine light went on and the dic message "reduced engine power message came on" which immediately limited the to approx. 2500 RPM. This action created a totally unsafe driving situation. The reduced power slowed the car immediately, in heavy traffic, in a heavy rain storm, with low visibility. Lucky for myself and my wife, I was able to avoid creating a series of collisions and traversed across three lanes of traffic to the side of the road. By immediately reducing the engine power created a very dangerous scenario that should never, under any circumstance be created.
