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.

Dealer replaced the fuel tank. Once again while driving at normal speed fuel tank collapsed. The collapse of the fuel tank was due to the vacuum that pump fuel failed to vent.

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Vehicle was losing fuel mileage and fuel gauge went to empty/ back full, then to normal, and reading 3/4 full. After consumer pulled over, and turned vehicle off, vehicle wouldn't restart. Independent garage gave back old fuel pump so consumer could see the problem. Wiring on pump and fuel gauge had melted and fused together, shorting out fuel pump and gauge. Consumer was concerned that it could repeat and cause an electrical short. Also, could occur with new pump.
