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.

Hi, first I've noticed very intensive smell of raw fuel coming out of my exhaust, but not consistantly. After that the level of oil in my motor started to increase slowly. I've changed it several times and i can say that is building up about a liter on every 2000 miles. I've been told by the official service center that maybe the fuel injectors are leaking when the motor is off, but they couldn't tell me for sure. Since they wanted to charge me about 900$ and were not certain that could solve the problem I've decided to look for help elsewhere. I hope that I came to the right place. Thank you in advance
