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.

When I fill the gas tank it will over flow at the filler neck. When the fuel pump cuts off there is air pressure that will force the gas out when the tank is filled. I have used different stations with the same results. This is a fire hazard.

When fueling, the automatic shut-off has started shutting off too late, resulting in a fuel spill every time = fire hazard plus paint damage. Multiple gas stations, multiple pumps, different temperatures. The incident date reflects the most recent fill-up, where I started searching for a solution. Searched on-line, and have read that this is a problem that is common with this make, model and model year. (unfortunately, I am just past the 3-year warranty period).

When filling up at the gas station, the gas will back splash out of the filler tube when it fills up. The gas tank does not allow for the air to disperse when filling it up. This is a safety issue and needs to be a recall ! if you are not aware of this happening you will get gasoline on you if you are near the fuel nozzle.

When filling the vehicle with gasoline and setting the gas pump to auto shut-off, the vehicle will not activate the auto shut-off resulting in gasoline blowing out of the fuel opening. This problem has happened three times so far and resulted in gasoline spilling onto my pants, shoes, side of vehicle, bumper and ground. This problem is dangerous to persons, damage to the vehicle and is an envirnomental issue.
