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.

Contact states: The gas tank cracked at the seams and is leaked gasoline. The gas tank was made of plastic and cannot be fixed.. she called a dealer, and the dealer was getting lots of complaints about the same thing. But GM has not issued a recall. The vehicle has not been fixed yet; but she was going to have it fixed as soon as possible.
