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.

On Jan. 5, 2004 as I was driving my 2002 Subaru WRX I could smell fuel coming in from the vents. I pulled over and popped the hood to get a very strong scent of fuel around the intake manifold. Subaru has issued a tsb on this, but why there is no recall is still bothersome to me. Leaking fuel in the engine compartment is not a good thing and this needs to be a recall. There have been several complaints from other WRX owners on this same issue.

The consumer smelled gas inside the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that the clamp on the fuel line came loose and leaked fuel.
