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.

My 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan began smelling like gas intermittently in 2002. When the smell repeated itself over the course of several months, we took it to the dealer. The dealer failed to find a leak or reason for the smell. The smell continued intermittently and in 2004, we took the car back again. This time the dealership advised replacing the entire fuel tank at a cost to us of $572. I'm not sure what the labor cost was. They refused to cover the cost of the poor design. They appear to have replaced it with a 2000 fuel pump, which was one of the pumps found poor in an insurance crash test rating.

When the gas tank is full, fuel leaks profusely from the fuel pump flange, pooling on the ground under the car. This same problem resulted in a recall of 96 model year Caravan after only six small fires.

Strong odor of gasoline in our garage one morning led us to find the fuel pump was leaking.
