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.

Recall on a fuel filler neck valve for a 98 Mercury Mystique, gas being unable to flow freely into gas tank, spits gas back out on you. August is the first time I knew there was a recall. Ford says my VIN # wasn't on recall, but the part is defective anyway.( dangerous ) occurs everytime you try and put gas into car. They put a canister vent valve on which was not the problem. They kept the old part that was good. Problem is fuel filler neck valve.
