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.

Problems with fuel rail on 1998 Dodge Caravan. The consumer had taken the vehicle in for a recall repair for the fuel line in which the Dodge dealer repaired it, but there was a continued leak that had come from the engine. The consumer then took the vehicle to good year who replaced the faulty line to stop the leak, and all the dealer did was place a stronger clamp around the leaking line. The consumer was denied a refund, because an authorized dealer did not perform the work. Recall#00V268000. The consumer also stated the transmission had to be replaced.
