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.

I try to refuel my truck at the gas pump but the pump kept shutting off. The fuel tank filler valve was not allowing the pump to pump the fuel in properly. There was a recall for the same problem on the 2005 Dodge durango (NHTSA 05V03400) and NHTSA item number: 10051769. I contacted daimler Chrysler an they said that my truck was not on the recall list for that problem.

Driving on highway, ran out of fuel. Fuel gauge and warning light failed. Required considerable effort to get to side of road. Fuel gauge registers tank has fuel when tank is empty. Required state police assistance because of high danger especially with children in vehicle.

I started the vehicle and instantly noticed a strong raw gas smell in the cab. Thinking it just overloaded by not starting it for a month, I waited for the smell to go away, but it didn't. looking through the rear wheel well, I discovered the fuel hose from the top of the gas tank had split and was spewing gasoline all around and under the bed of the truck. Just turning on the key, which starts the fuel pump and pressurizes the fuel line, causes gas to be discharged at a high rate. The truck is in excellent condition, well maintained, and has just 54,000 miles on it. I am glad I didn't drive on the highway with it; the potential for a fire and/or explosion while driving or sitting still at an intersection could case harm to not only myself, but other drivers around me.
