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 noticed the smell of gasoline around my car as well as inside my car. The smell of gasoline was not as potent and one day i decided to look under the car and i noticed my gas tank had some stains on it. I feared that my gas tank may have been ruptured but as I looked closer i noticed it was coming from the top. I assumed it was the fuel pump so i remove the back seat and removed the fuel pump cover and discovered that my fuel pump housing had cracks and a puddle of gas.
