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.

Gas gauge not working, registers full even when not full. Low fuel light will come on if you idle for a few minutes. At the same time this started the ABS light service traction system came on. This has also occurred with our 2002 buck century at approximately the same # of miles and again both the gas gauge reads inaccurately and the ABS light came on.***
