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.

The contact owns a 2003 Ford Ranger. The contact stated that the vehicle was slow to fill with fuel. Once the tank was filled, gasoline would spill back out. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but they could not repair the failure. There were no warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel. Prior to the failure, the contact installed a new fuel filter in the vehicle in March of 2008. The current and failure mileages were 50,000. Updated 6/15/09 updated 06/16/09.
