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 smelled gas while driving. I checked under the hood and gas was spraying from a leak. The leak was caused by abrasion where the line contacted a hard plastic "protective cover". it could have blown up! this appears to be a defect.

The vehicle shook and the engine failed completely when the consumer accelerated to a speed of 89-90 mph. The dealer indicated that the vehicle was equipped with a fuel cut off device which could cut off fuel at a speed over 85 mph.
