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 noticed the sidwall seperating from the tread on the inside of my tire while I was washing my car and took it to a tire dealer who replaced my tire. The tire(s) only have 8858 miles on them and not sure how long it was like that. The seperation was about 4 inches long. My other 3 tires have crackes arounds the tread and side wall as did the tire that had the seperation, but because the side wall had yet to seperate the tire dealer would not replace the other three.
