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.

There is a strong fuel smell in the cabin when I am on the highway doing 70mph, I have tried to check it out but there are no apparent fuel leaks, my mechanic suspects the evaporator system.

The smell of raw fuel engulfing the inside of the car making it near unbearable to drive without feeling dizzy or sick. This can't be safe. No visible leaks and the dealer cannot figure out why this is happening. This is unsafe and I'm assuming can lead to a fire. It can also incapacitate the driver and passengers due to the fumes which could cause an accident if this happens while the car is in motion.
