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.

The fuel injector started having issues, and the car has a whistling sound when the ignition is turned on. The smell of gas is coming from under the hood of the car. The electrical system has been off since we got the vehicle in November of 2013, the mirrors move by themselves and the sunroof never worked correctly.

Acted like it was running out of gas, loss of power and speed. Only 50mph when a boom in the engine, pulled over popped the hood latch, saw smoke, exited car as flames came out of the hood. Called 911.. car burnt to the ground. Witness stopped and told me that there is a problem with faulty fuel lines.
