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.

Fuel tank leaks due to corrosion near filler tube. This is a simular problem to the fuel tank corrosion experienced by 2006-on Kia sportages. Description: Fuel will leak from the tank when the tank is full due to rust/corrosion of the tank near the filler tube. The vehicle is operated/owned in Michigan, an area that uses large amounts of road salt during the winter months. Fuel leakage is posing a potential fire/explosion risk as fuel vapors from the leakage may be ignited. Fuel leakage occurs both when the vehicle is stationary and in motion. If the vehicle is parked in a closed garage the vapors can accumulate, elevating the risk for fire/explosion. (simularly the rear coolant lines rust through as well due to road salt, which is a known problem with the Kia Sedona)
