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.

Every time the tank is filled to full this vehicle stalls. At 3/4 fill it does not occur. In light of the Chevy cobalt tragedy perhaps a proper investigation into this defect will commence. This isn't a nuisance "temporary glitch" issue, because whenever a car loses power unexpectedly it should not be considered a nuisance issue. I experienced an engine stall at a high rate of speed entering a freeway just after fueling and my car lost all power. Half-baked suggestions like don't fill the tank full are silly. This is a serious issue that requires a specific repair recommendation.

Car stalls about 1 mile after filling up with gas. Has stalled going low and high speeds, leaving me with very little control of the vehicle.a mechanic recommended that I fill up before its under half full but that doesn't seem to help any. Now I fill up before I go into a nearby grocery store and afterwards I start the car a few times and it seems to prevent it from stalling. Last week my husband decided to drive it to work (long drive) and didn't take my advice during fill up and it stalled shortly after getting on the highway.

After filling the vehicle with gasoline it surges while gong down the road then dies. Vehicle restarts, may surge and die again, then drives normally tell next gas fill up.
