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.

2007 Saturn Ion. Consumer request the replacement of a fuel tank the consumer stated she paid an out of pocket expense of $ $988.05 for the parts and labor to replace the fuel tank. She believed the leak from the fuel tank was a direct result of the service performed when she took the vehicle to the dealer for a safety recall. She stated she had not experienced any problems with the vehicle prior to the recall that she received in March 2010. On June 2, 2010 the consumer took the vehicle to the dealer for the recall repair. Immediately after the repair, she had difficulty starting the vehicle and there was a loud rumbling noise when the vehicle was driven. The consumer returned to the dealer and the fuel pump module was replaced for a second time and an exhaust shield was shifted. The consumer then took a trip. During that time, she smelled gasoline at times, but was unsure if it was coming from her vehicle. After parking the vehicle in a small garage, there was a strong gasoline smell within an hour. When the consumer had her oil changed, the technician noted the vehicle was leaking fuel at the hose to the tank area and recommended that she take the vehicle to the dealer immediately. The dealer informed the consumer there was a leak coming from the filler neck leading to the fuel tank, and the entire fuel tank needed to be replaced. The consumer believed the leak occurred on one of the occasions the fuel tank was dropped for the previous fuel pump replacements.
