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.

Dealer claims that I damaged the charcoal canister by 'topping off" the gas tank. His definition of "topping off" is to fill until the pump shuts off, then add a little more to get a round number total cost. Since most people "top off" the tank using this definition, it would seem that this must be a design defect. The dealer says that if it is not fixed the car will fail required emissions tests, but that if it is fixed and I "top off" the tank it will fail again. There is no warning against "topping off" the tank in the owners manual. Therefore normal refueling results is permanant damage to the emissions system. This means that the emissions system can not be maintained in working condition.
