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 2005 BMW X3. The vehicle has Bridgestone turanza EL42, size P235/55R17 tires. While driving various speeds, the contact's vehicle makes a loud noise underneath the hood. The vehicle was taken to a dealer approximately six times, but they could not duplicate the failure. The vehicle was then taken to another mechanic and they stated that the steel belts failed on both front tires, which was the cause of the noise. The current mileage was 13,539 and failure mileage was 200. Updated 03-18-08
