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.

While driving 65 mph, the rear passenger tire began to produce a thumping noise. Later, the consumer discovered that the tire had separated. The problem lead to a unnecessary repair of the right front wheel bearing.

The tire experienced a flat, consumer noticed the tire had split from the inside out which was not normal. Dealer was contacted since tire was original equipment, consumer was told there were no recalls or tsb bulletins. Consumer had to replaced all 4 tires.

While in motion there was a thumping noise emmiting from the right front tire. The steering wheel locked and the key would not return it to it's normal postion. Also there is a problem with the brakes, also the gear would not shift out of park.

problem #2

Consumer checked tire pressure, because light is falsely illuminating. Light illuminates when tire pressure is at 4 pounds low, and the manual states that the light should only be illuminate at 12 lbs low. Consumer questions that if GM knew these cars contained defective modules, why were customers not sent recall letters, will she ever feel comfortable again w/ the icons on the dashboard & thier accuracy, if the tire icon illuminates while driving and a rate of 75 mph on a sparsely populated highway.
