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.

Express 8-cyl

V=incident has occurred several times. Each time vehicle taken to dealer who "corrects" the problems. Less than a 1000 miles later, problem reoccurs. Vehicle will be travelling when check engine & def indicator lights come on. Message on odometer reads "exhaust fluid quality poor"... xx miles until speed reduced to 65 mph. After each incident the dealer indicates it is a sensor problem, not a fluid quality problem. This unit is an emergency response ambulance in a rural area that must Transport emergency patients at least 30 miles to nearest hospital.

This is a C class rv by thor motor coach. The coach serial number is [xxx]. the vehicle would not take fuel. I bought it to two Chevrolet dealers who would not look at it because it had a motorhome body. One dealer hooked it up to a fault finder and found there was a fuel venting problem. They said it looked like the motor coach manufacturer had changed the fuel venting system and moved the tank. I finally was serviced, under warranty, by an rv dealer in tulsa Oklahoma. They told me the fuel tank had been moved which caused a kink in the fuel filler hose to the tank. They told me this was solved by cutting a section of the fuel filler hose to make it shorter and eliminating the kink. My concern is in a rollover accident will fuel now leak" this is a medium duty Chevrolet chassis so I don't really know if the same standards apply as do cars re. Fuel cutoff with rollover accidents or if I should report this to another Agency" thank you. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
