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.

The vehicle was taken back to the dealer and the contact was advised that there were three defective fuel injectors that would need replacing. The contact stated that the vehicle was previously repaired under NHTSA campaign id number: 06E043000 (fuel system, gasoline) yet the repair did not remedy the failure. The VIN was unavailable.
