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.

One day the gas gauge just stopped reading after it hit a quarter tank. It will still read accurate until that point, then the needle will bounce back & forth between empty & full. I am getting pretty good at estimating the number of miles I can safely get out of a tank of gas, but I have run out a couple of times. I've been told it costs in excess of $1000 to drop the tank and replace the sensor. Cheaper to just carry a gallon of gas extra....
