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.

Upon entering garage, smelled odor of gas by car...looked underneath, ,small puddle of fuel, ,closer examination found pinhole in rust patch on fuel line..other rust areas noticed, but this was only leak.corrosion is to be expected.but not to the point of failure after only 4 and one half was bought new and well maintained, also always garage kept.being out of warranty (of course!), I had to negoitiate with the dealer for a decent cost of the repair..I believe inferior quality is to blame and believe this can and will happen to others, hopefully without serious consequences...

While driving the vehicle stalled from 35-40 mph to 5 mph. A message came on the screen " engine power reduced". had I been on highway that would be ended in accident. Contacted GM and everyone I have been talking to them seems to be reading a script to me.

The vehicle just stops while driving, this is very dangerous and can cause a major accident. Dealer said the fuel pump was leaking!..for an almost brand new car this was unacceptable! it just happened again..the vehicle stops/the engine shuts down while driving! taking the vehicle again to the dealership to see what they say...
