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.

Gas servicing door will not open when fuel door release is pulled under drivers seat. Worked good for about 6 to 7 months then stopped working. Took in to dealer he was supposed to fix it. Did not. This could be a real problem if you cannot pry open the fuel door to service the door. This is a common occurrence from what is on the web. 2009 Hyundai Elantra touring.
