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.

I had a flat tire on H1 freeway westbound between kaonohi & pearl city exit where the H1 widening construction is on progress just before 10:00 am on 2/2/06. There are several large size gravels on the far left lane I was driving. By the time I spotted, it was too late to change the lane fast enough due to the vehicle next to me in heavy traffic. My left front tire & rim got hit by one of gravels & exploded I had aaa to change my spare & needed to purchase another rim & tire cost me $450
