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.

Starting getting raw gas odor inside car when starting car 1st thing in morning. I took my 2006 Lexus is-250 into dealer. I met with mechanic before starting car ( on the dealer lot ) so he could understand problem. It took about 20 seconds and we both had to get out of car because of gas smell. Customer rep called about 2 hours later and stated the mechanic found leaks in the fuel pipes. This was repaired on a recall about 17 months earlier.
