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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Low pressure diesel fuel tank fuel pump failure. No visible sign of contaminated fuel such as water or debris. This is second incident. Vehicle will suddenly slow to less than 2000 RPM and will not exceed 45 mph. Dealer replaced pump under warranty the first failure and now is blaming failure on fuel. Both incidents restricted the vehicles ability to accelerate and almost resulted in accidents.
