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.

The consumer stated that 2002 Saab 93se had a fuel leak. The fuel pump retaining tab was defective. It broke and caused one fuel line to disengage ands spill fuel all over the underside of the car. With the car idling a large pool of gas would gather under the car. The fire department was called for road side assistance. The car was deemed unsafe to start, and was towed to the dealer, who repaired the vehicle under warranty. The owner contacted Saab, and they were contacting the dealer.
