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 had taken my brand new GMC in to get a few recalls fixed when the manager told me I needed to replace the fuel filter. The whining sound from the fuel pump was annoying, but I knew nothing about cars, so I ignored it and went on. About a month later the vehicle wouldn't even idle, changing the fuel filter helped, but a few days later I had the same problem. I took it in to get it fixed and when they returned it to me, it was making the same noise, I took it back the next day, when they claimed to have changed the fuel pump. The vehicle ran fine for a couple of days when all of a sudden there was the noise and same problems again, I took it back to the dealership and when they returned it to me this third time they explained to me that some noise from the fuel pump is "normal" and I thought NORMAL?! It is not normal when you can hear the noise from the fuel pump with the windows up and the stereo on. I have finally given up and am debating claiming lemon law on it. I have never been so frustrated in my life.
