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.

Component: Fuel system, other:storage:fuel gauge system details: Dt*: the contact stated the fuel gauge read empty when the fuel tank was just filled up. The dealership was alerted, and the fuel sensor was replaced when a inspection was made and fixed. I have had five incidents prior to getting it repaired. I have had no problems after the fuel sensor was replaced by the factory warranty.
