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.

When putting gas in my 2008 Dodge Nitro at the end of the fill gasoline will erupt from the fill spout and spill over the car and the ground.

After owning my brand new 2008 Dodge Nitro for 14 months, every time I fueled it, the gas would spew out, way after the pump clicks off. I have been covered in gasoline 3 times and 2 servcie men have been as well. I have a 2 Y/O asthmatic daughter. The odor of gas engulfs the interior compartment as well when the overflow occurs. I have been refused loaners each time the truck has been in. This is a safety issue! but I had been told time and time again, Dodge did not feel it was a safety issue. Last week my whole tank was finally replaced after the 1st repair didnt work. Gased up today and gas back out all over my truck. As well as the gas spewing out covering anyone or anything in its way, my trucks paint is becoming damaged as well.
