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.

  • Automatic transmission

Wiring to fuel pump inside of gas tank getting hot enough to melt wire insulation and plastic connector resulting in gas leak at fuel pump module. Had replace fuel pump module, but its my concern that a fire could be caused by overheated wires inside of fuel tank.

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
Fuel pump wiring melted inside gas tank and caused vehicle to stall at highway speed in heavy traffic. Power steering and power brakes were lost making it difficult to control vehicle and safely get to the shoulder. Mechanic who replaced the pump owns an older Suburban and had his fuel pump fail multiple times until he replaced it with an aftermarket pump.
