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 filled my fuel tank up and notice a gasoline smell. During an inspection of the tank I found gas on the ground and the rear fuel tank strap rusted completely through and a hole in the tank where the strap would have been. This is not only a health hazard but a fire hazard as well.
