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 consumer is a Canadian resident. When the consumer exited the vehicle, he smelled gasoline. The consumer had the engine turned off and inspected underneath the vehicle and discovered fuel was pouring from the gas connection pipe that goes into the tank. The sealant was plastic as well as the tank. The consumer immediately drove to a local GMC dealer about two to three kilometers away and spoke to a mechanic there regarding the matter. The mechanic inspected the leak and noted this was a common problem and the sealant connector had broken or cracked allowing a fuel leak. There was no guard whatsoever around this connector piece. The vehicle originally had a full tank and at this time it was half full when the consumer arrived at the GMC dealership. The consumer was concerned about a potential ignition source for the leak. The dealership has ordered a new gas tank for which the consumer has to pay for because GM notes this was something other than a safety defect. The consumer is concerned the same plastic fittings are going to be replaced on the vehicle. The failure mileage was 37,000 kilometers, current kilometers is 37,000 as well. The vehicle was purchased new.
