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.

1998 Nissan Frontier- fuel pump failed-towed to dealer in mid winter. Dealer claims the tank and sending unit must be replaced due to rust/corrosion for over $1100. Ok'd repair but cannot be done because no fuel tanks available. Dealer has truck, to tow it to a private repair shop would be an added expense with no guarantee of repair. Dealer will only use new Nissan tank that they can't get. I have no truck.
