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.

About 8 months ago my check engine light came on so I took it to a dealership to have the code read. They told me it was the evaporative emissions system. It sounded serious so I said just fix it. $600 later my car was running great with no problems. About a week ago my check engine light came on for the same reason. Dealership wont fix it again and basically told me they have done all they can do. They dont know what it is. Everytime I fill my gas tank my car takes about 10 minutes to start again and it struggles. Lots of sputtering and most of the time it starts then dies. Ive been told I wasn't the cause and its probably just a faulty gas cap so I replaced that and the light is still on after having it cleared. Their other explanation was its a Saturn so expect problems. I was not happy to hear that. They replaced the purge valve, vent valve, checked for leaks and everything. There is no reason it should be messed up again especially this soon after replacement. Other than that my car runs great after 4 years of owning and driving it all over the state.
