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 fuel pump just stopped working causing a complete shut down of all systems no steering, brakes, etc;just by luck the wife was driving slow in traffic but can you imiange if you were driving at high speeds!!!! and to top it off because of a poor design the consumer gets stuck with a $619 repair bill due to the fact the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank and is labor intensive to repair which really sucks!!!! thank you for your time but to me this is a real safety hazard not to mention the high cost just to repair a fuel pump
