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.

Bonneville SE 3800 Series 2

After spending 800 dollars to fix the cracked upper manifold the fuel tank decides to begin rotting away. Nice thing about it is that GM engineered the fuel system to distribute the corrosion to the entire fuel system fairly quickly. All the fuel lines needed to be replaced, the fuel pump, sending unit, and tank all needed to be replaced. I was one of the lucky few who didn't have it go at 50,000 miles like most 3800 series 2 engines do.
