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.

Consumer disappointed with reimbursement for 1998 Pontiac Bonneville. The fuel pressure regulator was replaced. Recall campaign: 04V090000. The recall is related to the fuel pressure regulator leak. The temperature gauge was fluctuating while the vehicle was being driven. The check engine light did not come on. The consumer turned the engine off and allowed it to cool off. The consumer restarted the vehicle and heard a loud back fire with a loud bang. The vehicle did not restart. The consumer smelled fuel shortly after. The vehicle was towed to a nearby dealer. The intake plenum and the intake plenum gasket needed to be replaced. The thermostat blew out again. The consumer stated that he feels that the failures are a result of the recall issue therefore the reimbursement check was not sufficient. The consumer stated that the brakes had a ticking noise.
