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.

Engine would not start -- replaced fuel filter which was full of odd debris [mechanic, non-dealer, cut it open to inspect]. four days later same problem. Did some research online and found several complaints that the gas tank lining can deterioatesand leave debris in tank which passes to filter then beyond. Car is now at dealer awaiting diagnosis. Dealer rep says he is unaware of any such problem with the gas tank.
