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.

Gas gauge does not accurately reflect fuel. It jumps wildly at times from full to empty and back to full. It often shows 3/4 of a tank when it is actually near empty. I had to begin tracking my mileage to ensure I do not run out of gas. Gas light goes on and off but usually coincides with an empty reading. And this is not covered under any warranty. When this started happening I ran out of gas with 2 small children in the car in winter due to gauge said 1/2 tank...

Our mechanic found that the fuel tank was leaking and that there is a recall for that part. We took it to the dealer and the dealer stated that there is no recall for our van. The dealer was. The NHTSA action number is ea 07006. We called GM and left two messages for a representative named. Please require the dealer to honor the recall.

Where the rubber gas tank fill hose attaches to the gas tank, at the check valve, it has fractured and broken off the gas tank so that now when attempting to add fuel to the vehicle it leak out all over the exterior of the tank.
