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.

Driving our Nissan Armada at apprx 15mph and went over a tree branch that could not be avoided that had fallen, with no injury to our vehicle but caused a large leak in the gas tank. Now the punctured gas tank has to be replaced. The risk of this large puncture in the tank from such a minor impact could have resulted in an explosion of the vehicle. Fuel tanks should not be made in a manner that they are so vulnerable to damage because it is a hazard.

Around 7/09, my Armada just stopped on the freeway (according to the gas gauge, we had a 1/2 tank left)... then found out on 7/27/09 that gas gauge was faulty, so I had to pay $560.21 to antioch Nissan to have that replaced. On 3/3/10, heard on the news there's a recall on fuel gauge on my Nissan & got my reimbursement & had fuel gauge replaced again on 4/2/10... once in a while when I put gas in my Armada, it takes forever for the gas gauge to go up to where it's supposed to be (ie. I put $40 which should put it in 1/2 tank... I drove 5 miles before it actually got from 1/4 tank to 1/2 tank... I took pictures of this occurrence).
