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.

Failure of the gas cap. The gas cap cannot be removed when adding gas. This is the second occurrence. The first time I was low on gas approx 2 gals remaining and we pulled in for gas and the gas cap would not unlatch. I had to break it off to put gas in the car but was not able to attached the cap. It happened on the weekend so it was 2 days before it was in for service. This occurrence was very similar, the cap feels like it wants to come off but it won't release. I had a half of tank this time and wanted to top off the tank. Finally I broke the cap and the top broke off with the other part still in the tank. Once again this happened on a Saturday and the vehicle can't go in until Monday or Tuesday.
