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.

The fuel guage reports incorrect fuel level. You can go the the gas station and fill the car up and the gas hand will show it as being empty and before you put fuel in the tank the guage was at a 1/4 tank. You may have to turn the car off and on several times before it will show that it is full. Also, while driving all of a sudden the car will cut off in heavy traffic. One time the car showed 3/4 tank of fuel while it was empty. Luckly, I was on a downgrade and was able to get it into the emergency lane on the interstate. The dealer has told me that there is not a problem with the fuel system. Furthermore, the check engine light has come on because the oxygen sensor has been damaged by the car running out of gas.
