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 drive a 2002 Ford Sport Trac with following problems that can not be corrected by the dealership.1) the fuel tank is not properly vented, because the last 3-4 gallons could take 3-4 minutes to accomplish while refueling. 2) while driving beteen 60-65 mph on the interstate and following the dealership's instructions, the best that can be accomplish is 15-16 mpg. 3) the over-head temperature can not be calibrated, it remains 4-5 degrees off.
