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.

Beginning about 4 months after I bought the vehicle, the fuel gauge began to malfunction. The gauge fluctuates from half full to empty. Many times the gauge shows 1/4 to empty but the tank is empty. I have run out of gas numerous times (at least 10 times) over the last 2 years because the gauge shows I have gas and the tank is empty. Took it to the dealer on numerous occasions and the dealer said they checked it but found no problem. This is a dangerous situation when traveling on the freeway at high speed and I lose all power steering and brakes. I now have to fill up the tank when the gauge reads half empty to avoid running out of gas. The gauge is completely unreliable.
