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 filling tank up and riding gas down to about 3/4 tank. Gas warning light comes on, and the gas guage needle will go down to empty. This will continue until tank has been completely filled back up. Dealer said fuel sensor in the tank needed to be replaced.
