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.

Well, Christine is at it again!! I have a raw gas smell coming into my car when I drive. It is so bad that my kids hate being in it and so do I! You get a headache if it is a long drive, not to mention the safety issue!! My son had surgery on Jan.14, and is now having complications. I have been taking him to doctors about 3 times a week, and now they want me to take him to Rockford. That is over an hour away!! I know I can't use Christine, so now I have to inconvenience my family members. My mom said I can use her car, but it is a 2000 Malibu with 29,000 miles on it and she is terrified to put miles on it because of what I am going through, so I hate asking her! This car is going to kill me yet!

It is a huge pain, scare, and everything else when you start your car and go to drive and you smell raw gas entering the INSIDE of your car!! I had such a headache!! I had to have the fuel Rail O-RIng replaced, and the EGR gasket replaced. I found out that it was leaking by the engine, and was a dangerous situation because it really could have ignited at any time. It is now Jan.2008, and Christine is at it again, trying to gas me out, but this time, my money-pit of a car has taken all of my savings and I don't know what I am going to do!! I feel very unsafe with this beast!
