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.

Jaguar schererville, Indiana diagnosed as an improper gas cap fitting. 2) the smell continues and Jaguar has now diagnosed the issue as a hole in the gas tank. (3) Jaguar, while recognizing that several vehicles have had this defect, refuses to either repair the gas tank as a warranty item, or recall the gas tank as defective and a public safety concern.
