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.

Took the vehicle in for the 15,000 miles check up. This vehicle isn't even a year old. They told us the fuel tank charcoal canister was cracked, however the plastic shrowd was not. The dealer wanted $1,100 dollars to fix this. This should be covered under warranty. How could this car less than 20,000 miles and less than a year old have a cracked canister, without the shrowd being cracked. Dealer said this was not covered under warranty. This is a defect then that should be covered by a recall.
