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.

Having trouble putting gas in the car, nozzle keeps shutting off about every couple of seconds. Happens every time I get gas. Tried different stations some attendants will try different ways to put the nozzle in or turn it but it still does it.first started at the end of may2010. Car is a 2002 Accent with only 52,000 miles on it. Took to dealer said the charcoal canister, dmtl motor, & a valve assy-fuel V need to be replaced. Had to prepay for parts to be ordered. Picked car up until parts come in.
