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 gas tank on my 1998 Monte Carlo has rusted through, I have checked at NHTSA web site and this seems to be a defective problem, I have also check at a junk yard and this was also the case the gas tank was runted through. I made complaint to Chevy but was told car to old and warrenty had run out, I feel this is a real big problem and very dangerous for all the people driving thses cars should they every be in an accident it would proably go up in flames this is something that should be looked into before lives are lost.
