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.

Vehicle:2004 BMW 745li defective equipment: Sevas S-10 wheels after traveling about two hours going 65mph all of the sudden I hear a loud pop as my vehicle starts to swerve. I saw sparks and heard more grinding noises. Luckily traffic was light and I was able to avoid an accident. As I pulled to shoulder, it was apparent what had happened, my wheels just fell apart. After about ten minutes a police officer stopped by and called a wrecker. The following day I replaced the damaged sevas S-10 wheels with my factory wheels and realized just how bad it could've been. The wheels were completely severed the only thing holding the wheels together were the tires, which themselves were badly damaged. The incident cause damage to the TPMS, left rear strut and gashes in the wheels wells and underbody carriage.
