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.

While driving the vehicle in stop and go traffic consumer noticed smoke coming from under the hood, and the vehicle hesitated. Consumer was able to pull the vehicle out of traffics onto the side of the road. The local fire department arrived to extinguish the fire. Vehicle was towed to the dealer. The insurance investigator inspected the vehicle and determined that the cause of the fire was a fuel rail failure which leaked fuel onto the manifold.
