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 was hauling bales with the truck, filled the gas tank for the next day... Next morning I noticed a darkspot under vehicle and noticed it leaking Gasoline...After some investigating and talking with our local mechanic, and taking it there, we discovered the fuel tank completely sucked together causing it to leak... Apparently, instead of putting a vented gas cap on, Chevrolet put a computer controlled valve(which malfunctioned, not letting fuel tank get air) we had to have the fuel tank replaced, and the vent valve fixed.. As well, the mechanic fixed the cap so it could vent also!!! costing a fairly large sum of money, can't recall exact amount but over $1000.00 (Canadian)...It would have been better for Chevrolet just to keep using vented gas caps...
