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 submitted my complaint to GM and to the attorney general of Michigan. My complaint stems from problems I have encountered over the last 3-4 years with my 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass related to rust on and around the gas filler pipe and door. I have a continuous warning light (check engine) on my dashboard that according to the owner's manual may impact the emission controls in my engine. This warning light appears to be due to the poor fit of the gas cap on the filler pipe due to rust. Cap replacement has not helped. There is also a significant amount of rust that has developed surrounding the gas filler pipe door on the right rear body panel. I spoke with a body shop and they mentioned they had seen several vehicles of this type with similar damage and was due to the insulation collecting moisture under the body panel and rusting through from the back side. I have personally seen two other same make/model vehicles with the same exact issues. GM responded to my complaint stating the rust-through protection on my vehicle had expired and there are no currently no recalls issued. My contention is this issue is not isolated to my vehicle regardless of mileage and age and presents not only unsightly damage and cost to repair, but a safety issue surrounding the gas filler pipe.
