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.

The contact owns a 2008 Hyundai Elantra. The contact stated that while starting the ignition, he noticed that the fuel level gauge displayed an empty tank reading although the fuel capacity level was at one quarter full. The vehicle was repaired in 2008 under NHTSA campaign id number 08V694000 (fuel system, gasoline) however, the recall remedy failed to correct the problem.
