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.

Pathfinder 6-cyl

I filled up my vehicle with gas and when I was driving I could smell gas somewhere - so I only filled it half full after that. I went to bergstrom of oshkosh, Wisconsin to get a different recall repaired (I think it was about a year ago) having to do with the steering. They kept my vehicle for 4 months and finally fixed it. They said that I also had a recall on the gas neck of the vehicle and they said they didn't have the parts to fix it but that they would call me. It's been over a year now and they still have not called me to get it fixed. I can only fill my tank only half way. This is unsafe and needs to be resolved.
