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 just bought this car (knowing the defects). The gas gauge does not work properly. The previous owner had to explain to me how to tell how much gas in in the tank. It reads differently each time the car is started so you never know how much is in it. I will be having it looked at to determine a solution but if it costs a lot I will be dealing with monitoring how many miles are driven for the amount of gas put in it. That will not make me very happy.
