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.

My check engine light was on. I took it to find out why it was on and was told that it was probably because of the gas cap not being tight enough. About 3 days later, I find a puddle of gasoline underneath my car. It was dripping from the tank. Then, I took it in to a nearby shop and they called me this morning and told me that the seal on my gas tank is bad. So, I'm having to pay to get the whole gas tank replaced. I looked up recalls, and I notice that they had this problem with the 2007 model of my vehicle (one year older than my car).
