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.

There was a strong fuel odor coming in the interior and the exterior of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic but they could not detect if there was a fuel leak or why the fuel odor was so strong. This only seem to happen in the cold weather months the smelll is a lot stronger when the car is not moving but still running in traffic or warming up or at a stop light.

My 2005 Pontiac aztec fuel gauge has quit working properly. I never know when I start the vehicle if it will work or not. It may show empty it may go past empty and sometimes it working properly. I have done some research and the seems to be a problem with all aztecs.
