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.

The contact owns a 2010 Audi A3 equipped with Bridgestone potenza tires, tire size 225/14/18. While driving approximately 15 mph approaching a stop signal, the contact observed that the tire pressure indicator displayed a low pressure reading. Immediately, the vehicle was driven to the side of the road. The rear driver side tire had slightly flattened; and replaced with the spare tire.
