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.

problem #3

2009 Nissan GT-R develops a strong in-cabin smell of gas fumes during "spirited drives" on the race track. This happens every single time I've taken it to the track and the smell is overwhelming. Nissan redesigned the evap system for 2010, so it seems like they are aware of this issue already. I had my evap valve changed with no improvement in the situation. Many other GT-R owners are having this same issue... see: some of these events happen even during normal driving conditions, but it seems that driving at the race track under high loads brings the smell out in most GT-R's. another issue which may or may not be related is that when refueling the car gas will often pour out of the filler opening when removing the pump handle, especially when filling it rapidly and when the car is hot.

Driving a 2009 Nissan GT-R on a road course results in a strong fuel smell within the passenger cabin. This appears to occur frequently in other GT-R's as well. In fact, Nissan redesigned the fuel tank and evap canister system in 2010 GT-R's because of these issues.
