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.

2005 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

Our 2005 Prius developed a massive gasoline leak, which made it an obvious fire hazard. We drove it home, and the car was towed to the dealer, where they found that the car's plastic fuel lines that had been damaged by rodents. The fuel lines were replaced by new plastic ones. However, we live in the country, where squirrels and mice abound, so this dangerous problem will probably happen again. There are no metal fuel lines available for this vehicle; we consider these plastic, exposed fuel lines a safety hazard.
