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.

I have noticed a very strom gas smell in and outside of my wehicle lately. I took it to the garage and it needs a new gas tank as the original has rusted and leaking. I see where this model has a recall in the states with high road salt useage - this unit came from Ontario with high road salt useage.
