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.

While having vehicle looked at oil change place I complained to attendant about strong fuel odor. He looked under vehicle and saw a gas drip near exhaust system. He looked under seat and removed compartment for pump. He said looked like a defective piece on top that was seeping gas through membrane. Have stopped driving vehicle for fear of explosion or fire.

After smelling gasoline on several occasions, we determined there was a crack in the fuel filter housing assembly. The crack allowed gasoline to pump out filling the indention on the top of the fuel tank then overflowing down the sides of the tank.
