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.

Right front metal wheel separated within seconds, pulled the car right into an embankment, car rolled left multiple times investigating officer from goochland county sheriff's dept. Said had never seen similar failure. There were no reported obstructions in the road. There were no eyewitnesses. Driver lost consciousness during first rollover. Child said they rolled 3 or 4 times and apparently did not lose consciousness. Wheel failed in the vertical axis in a jagged manner. Pictures of failed wheel are available seatbelts were on 31 year old driver and 8 year old son no ticket or violation was issued driver went to patient first following day with headache and chest pain child complained following day of minor neck pain but not since auto was taken by state farm for investigation car was well maintained since purchased new in 2003 and maintenance records are available tires were purchased in Sept and Dec of 2013 - so less than 12 months old if not for seatbelts this would likely have caused fatalities.
