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.

The contact stated while driving vehicle caught on fire. There were no warning signs indicating a problem with the vehicle. He noticed smoke coming from the floorboard and the dashboard. When he pulled off the road there were flames coming up through the floorboard. The vehicle has not been inspected to determine the cause of fire, but he believed it was the fuel injection system. The manufacturer referred him to contact the dealer. He has not contacted the service dealer to inform them of the fire.
