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.

I attempted to get a tx vehicle inspection and was advised there was a gas leak. I took the vehicle to Firestone and they stated it was the fuel pump which they replaced and charged me $600 for parts and labor. I googled the issue afterwards and found there had been a recall for this problem, but when I contacted GM, they stated my VIN was not included in the recall. I just think it's strange that I am seeing others with this same issue being told the same thing about VIN specific. Is it not possible some vins were left out?

G5 4-cyl

  • 83,000 miles
My Pontiac G5 2007 took several times to turn over and start. We've noticed a strong gas smell and upon looking under the car we are having a gas leak. The gas isn't dripping down however more like a condensation all over the outside of the gas tank. I noticed they have had a recall on this before (NHTSA campaign id number: 09V419000) and (GM recall no. 090226), however GM is not considering this as a recall. This is not acceptable because it states if this issue isn't correct it could cause a fire! I for one do not feel safe driving this car let alone my wife (especially being her car). The issue stated in the recall is (fuel system, gasoline:delivery:fuel pump) so I'm not understanding why I haven't been notified for this issue especially when the recall deals with my car.
