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.

Acadia 6-cyl

  • 200 miles
GMC Acadia was bought in January 2008. Has been back 4 times for propane smell that comes into the car from through the vents. It mostly happens when I stop for a red light. The fumes seem to back up into the car. Catalytic converter and exhaust system was switch out but it continues to happen even after 7000 miles. Have called GM Corp as well as dealer to complain that the smell is making me sick. Doctor notes have been sent to dealer and Corp but still not resolved. I drive with my windows open even if it 20 degrees.
