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 bought a 2005 Ford Freestar used with 25000 miles on it. Three weeks later the gas cap light came on a day after that the check engine light came on, when the van was looked at the charcoal canister was cracked in the front. I was told something hit it and it was not under warranty. He showed it to me and other than the hole in the front there was no sign of any damage not a scratch. I called Ford and they told me they would not do any thing to help. My point to them was if something can hit the canister and crack it but not even scratch the paint on the underside of the van than it must be in a bad place. I can not replace it every three weeks at $500 a time. The old part will be available when I can replace the old one I do have pictures of it in place.
