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 "floats" and then drops to empty. Pretty much always on "empty" now which lights my check engine sensor, but every once in awhile it will rise above empty for a few miles and then drop like a rock again! have been tracking gas mileage with my trip odometer, but having been reading that this "fix" is not always accurate, and people are running out of gas left and right on major, busy highways. As the mileage indicates, I drive more than 100 miles per day and cannot afford to have my car just stop running like some of the other people have mentioned. This is a major safety issue and should have been recalled well before now. Are we going to wait for a repeat of the national airbag recall currently underway, trouble that shattered countless lives, because a large car company is too cheap to fix a problem they are well aware of and make their cars safe? government step in!
