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.

problem #2

Jul 282004

Echo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


Fuel line came spontaneously undone while sitting at a stop light. Had towed to dealer, they could not figure out why it occurred. Fuel line was reinstalled at no charge, but I am concerned that it may just happen again.

Echo 4-cyl

The vehicle was leaking gas due to a fuel line crack. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who removed fuel tank, and replaced the fuel line. 3000 miles later, the problem recurred.
