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.

I own a 2003 GMC Envoy XLT service engine light is on returned the vehicle to the dealer and was told this is a cracked fuel tank. Dealer showed me where the fuel was leaking it was leaking on a weld that attaches the filler hose to the fuel tank. This certainly isn't a wearable part and it doesn't receive much corrosion due to being a Florida car. There are many forums on the internet and many vehicle owners that have the same problem. I would think that a fuel leak may lead to extremely hazardous situation for all motor vehicle owners. I understand an investigation has been raised and closed. It is unfair that GM manufactures a fuel tank that could be a risk to its consumers. This case needs to be revisited and reopened.

In late 2007, my wife began smelling a strong odor of gasoline coming from in and around our 2002 GMC Envoy XL. The odor is present whether the tank is full or near empty.

Check engine light turned on. Taken vehicle to the dealer and found that there was a leak at the filler pipe and fuel tank which allowed fuel and vapors to escape. Dealer will repair for $900.
