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.

2004 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 35,400 miles


I own a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette. While the vehicle was parked in the garage I smelled a strong fuel odor. I checked and he replaced the gasoline cap, and noticed a gas puddle on the ground washed the vehicle but could still smell fuel. The vehicle was taken to a Chevrolet mechanic who diagnosed the failure and confirmed that the fuel tank pipe connectors were defective. The fuel tank connectors could not be replaced; therefore, the fuel tank had to be replaced. The vehicle wasn't repaired. The failure mileage was 35,400 and the current mileage was 35,400. The Chevrolet dealer diagnosed the following issues: Needs left side fuel tank and sending unit $3,887.50, rear brakes pads and rotors $517.50, front brakes pads and rotors $482.50, brake flush $165, induction and injector services $350. Service rear posi diff. $165. Currently I am a cancer patient and due to medical cost I am unable to afford the repairs. This vehicle is the only mode of transportation that I have.any assistance that you could afford me would be greatly appreciated shouldn't the issues be a recall/safety issue. Thanks in advance..R. thomas
