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.

For few years I have been noticing terrible mileage, but thought the car was getting older. For definitely an year, there is a noticeable smell of gasoline in the car, again thought its the sign of an old car. But, last weekend I realized that this is a safety issue and finally got around whats happening. The fuel started dripping at the fuel tank - fuel line and is dripping at 1 drop per minute.. not sure if it drips at the same rate all the time. Reading at all the complaints, it seems like NHTSA would only consider anything after someone dies. Sounds like useless posting over here, but just doing it for the benefit of others. This car had been leaking for a while, though the drip started very recently, thus giving very low mileage. This is a safety issue which should result in a recall.
