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 fueling the vehicle the pump to the gasoline tank kept cutting off. When the contact continued to pump the gasoline it leaked onto the pavement and came out of the opening of the filler tank. It took almost 30 minutes to put half a tank of gasoline into the vehicle. The vehicle has not been to a service dealer yet.
