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.

Soon after purchase of vehicle on above date I began to notice a smell of gas outside the vehicle. Recently an independent station indicated they saw gas leak evidence on the gas tank, and before repair I should check for recall, since they had made similar repairs before. I did research to discover NHTSA campaign id number: 12V459000, indicating recall of fuel pump assemblies that have failed and were fire dangers. The GM recall center said there was no recall for my vehicle, and the local GM dealership also confirmed there was no recall according to my VIN. I believe the manufacturer may have limited the recall to not include cars that are in fact defective, and would like for the NHTSA to investigate.

Began to experience a strong fuel odor from the car when it is parked. Looked under it and the fuel tank is wet w/ fuel. Looked on internet and saw a recall for a cracked return port on fuel pump. Car was sold and has been registered in AZ all it's life. Called dealer and was told that there was no open recall on this VIN. Called GM and was told the same about the VIN. Very frustrating!!!!

My car had issues with the fuel pump/fuel line that required them to be replaced. It was leaking gas. Strong gas odor. I was told to tow it to a mechanic because driving was not safe...could ignite. There was not a recall at the time, but now there is in four states...just not mine. Same issues as the recent recall.

A strong odor of gasoline coming from rear of car while running and after turned off. Trouble starting car on first turn of the key. Took to dealer and there was a crack in the fuel pump and had to be replaced. The dealer said as soon as we took it to be assessed it was either the gas tank or fuel pump and could be very costly to fix. If the dealers are aware of this issue why has there not been a recall for this" isn't this a safety issue? luckily I have the extended warranty because it was over 800 dollars to fix. I have seen numerous complaints about this problem, so why have the parts not been recalled"

Could smell gasoline fumes on outside of vehicle after use. After checking online, found out others had a problem with the fuel pump outlet cracking. Removed the tank and found the discharge fitting on the fuel pump was cracked. I cannot believe something as serious as this has not been addressed with a recall. When I touch the discharge line the outlet fitting completely broke off. This is an extreme fire hazard.
