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 plastic cap that seals the gasket sealing the fuel pump in the top of the gas tank popped off and gasoline was pumped out all over the inside of the engine and poured out all over the highway leading to emptying of the gas tank and major risk on the highway. There were no holes in the gas tank and the plastic cap was not broken, it had simply popped off leading to this potentially disasterous problem. Car needed to be towed, gasoline all over theplace, and major fire hazard.
