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.

Lancer Evolution

The smell of gas fumes while driving coming from a 2010 Mitsubishi evolution touring. This happens either with the ac on or off, while standing in traffic or doing the speed limit or driving on the highway. The smells cause is not determined by any non-Mitsubishi mechanic nor a Mitsubishi mechanic. Getting dizzy because of the gas fumes coming from the car is a danger to the drivers, his or her company in the car and any person on the road.

The dealer does not know where the failure originated and did not have a remedy. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 11,500.
