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 stopped working. We understand this is an issue with GM SUV's like Envoy, trailblazer, Buick and possibly more. Our dealer insists there is no recall. This vehicle is pretty much 99% GM except for the name.

The contact owns a 2005 Isuzu Ascender. The contact stated that while the brakes were depressed, the engine exhibited an unusual increase in rpms of up to 3,500. The contact shifted into neutral yet the failure persisted. The contact turned off the vehicle and when restarting, the vehicle proceeded as normal. In addition, the fuel level gauge would provide erroneous fuel level readings. Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer was contacted in regards to the failure. The failure and current mileage was 85,000.
