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.

While driving vehicle approximately 70mph fuel gauge read 1/4 tank of gas. Vehicle stalled on highway. Vehicle was checked by dealer who determined that fuel pump was damaged. Gauge was reading incorrectly, and vehicle had no gas. Dealer advised problem was a part flaw w/gauge. Manufacturer will not assist because vehicle was out of warranty. Vehicle stalling almost caused consumer to have a collison on the highway.

Gas gauge is not working properly. Gas gauge will read that tank is empty when the tank is really full. Contacted dealer who is not willing to do anything.
