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.

Fuel gauge operates intermittently. Gauge may show as 'full' when empty; or indicate 'empty' when full. At times, gauge lighting is off and will not reflect either 'full' or 'empty' fuel tank. Has also indicated as containing fuel in tank, when in reality is near empty, which may cause driver to run out of fuel without sufficient warning.

Fuel pumps are leaking from the top of pump housing and are filling up the cubby hole that they sit in, with gas. This pump has a access hole under the rear seat and fumes can be smelled inside and outside of the cars, with some leaking on the ground. It also is know to be on some Odyssey as well. If parked in the garage overnight the fumes could fill the area and be ignited by a water heater or some other source. I have replaced many of these pumps over the years and Honda dealers are doing the same with no concern that they are a defect and could cause a potential safety risk.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic. The contact stated that there was a strong gasoline fuel odor. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign id number: 07V512000 (fuel system, other:storage:tank assembly) that could have been related to the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and advised that the VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 103,000.
