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 tank is leaking at connector to fuel filler hose. Entire gas tank must be replaced. There has been a history of the gas tank making popping noises.

problem #1

  • 23,000 miles
The location of the unsealed fuel tank filler valve allowed an object to come in contact with it and ripped the connection under the vehicle while driving. This caused fuel to dispense from the tank.
