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 2004 Isuzu Rodeo. The stated that the intake manifold gasket has blown 3 times since the vehicle was purchased. The manifold has been replaced once under warranty, the second time under the extended warranty, and now the manifold has blown while driving 25 mph again and the warranty has expired. The contact would like for the manufacturer to be responsible for the repairs since this is a manufacturers defect. The failure mileage was 104,000.

The fuel gauge does not always register the correct level and "check engine" light stays on constantly. The air conditioning fan stops blowing for days.
