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.

Vehicle is experiencing a problem with the exhaust fumes which seem to be getting into the cab of the pickup. Vehicle has been to the dealers on several occasions. Also, contacted the manufacturer. However, they did not help the owner with this problem. The exhaust fumes were coming through the air conditioner and heat vents. When driving, the exhaust fumes burned the driver's eyes, and gave owner a headache. Updated 12/27/2005 - the vehicle has also been having injector problems
