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.

While exiting a parking facility cars were doing an alternate merge into a single lane. It was slow stop and go and I was waiting my turn with my foot on the brake. All of a sudden my car accelerated aggressively and I slammed on the brakes and put it in park. I used just less than a car length to stop the car after it lurched forward. I noticed that the tachometer momentarily exceeded 4000 RPM. This would have been an accident except for fortuitous timing. I allowed the car to my left space to merge and there was about a car length of space available which the other car had not entered yet. That space gave me the margin to get the car stopped without hitting a car in front of me.

I went to fill my gas tank, and my gas tank started leaking. I drove straight to my mechanic and he told me the gas tank had rusted through and the strap holding the tank had rusted and broke away. I had the tank and strap replaced at a cost to me of $632.
