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 contact owns a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact stated when adding gasoline to the fuel tank, the vehicle would stall while traveling at various speeds. Whenever the contact added less than a fill up, the failure would not occur. The vehicle was taken to the dealer approximately 10-12 times to correct the failure. The dealer replaced the fuel canister, fuel pump and the gas tank in an attempt to correct the failure to no avail. The failure persisted and the warranty was no longer valid. The failure mileage was 57,000 and the current mileage was 72,000. Updated 7/16/10

Wife went to start car in morning. Loud explosion followed by smoke from engine compartment. She left vehicle. She smelled burnt plastic smell. I checked later and saw exploded intake manifold and hose on top of engine. Obvious explosion in engine intake area with enough force to blow manifold into pieces. Car is at dealer. They are waiting for new intake manifold to repair vehicle. Unconcerned about potential harm to driver/passengers of vehicle. This has potential for fire in engine compartment and vehicle and could be very dangerous situation.
