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 reads 1/2 full and slowly declines till it hits about 1/3 full then drops to empty. If you don't get gas you will run out in minutes. I took it in and they replaced the sending unit and on the way home it did the same thing. Chrysler needs to help us on this one. I'm stuck with a city car that I need to use on long distances.

Pacifica

Gas gauge showed 1/3 full & it suddenly dropped to empty. "milesto empty" went from 142 to 14, then 6. upon starting the car the next morning, fuel gauge showed 1/3 full then dropped to empty again. "miles to empty" showed 2. I drove 8 miles then added 14 gallons of gas to fill the 23 gallon tank. It has happened at least 5 times since then. One mechanic told me I had to bring it in when it was happening as it was a sensor issue. Another told me the car actually has two gas tanks & the fuel pump vacuum was probably not picking up the fuel from the second tank properly. He said the dealership fixed a 2005 Pacifica with the same issue.
