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.

All four tires continuously deflate. Within 3 - 4 days the tire pressure can get as low as 10 lbs of pressure. I must add pressure anytime I want to drive the vehicle. The tires have been checked for damage this is not the problem. Appears the tires are leaking around the rims. This problem has existed since our purchase of the vehicle in Oct of 2005. Our small town dealership has not taken the initiative to correct the problem, but have only stated there were no recalls on the rims. Since we drive this vehicle infrequently and have other vehicles for transportation we have chosen to live with the inconvenience up to this point. The vehicle, today has less than 40K miles on it. I do not feel that I the consumer should incur the expense of correcting this problem. Please advise how I should proceed with reconciling this problem. I've also submitted a complaint under ODI #10262250. As I also have a speedometer issue which just started occurring.

Rainier 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 167 miles
On February 18, 2005 approximately 6:25 am was traveling West on quail meadow drive approximately 65 feet from stop sign a bus made a turn into my lane coming from intersecting street. Moved over to right onto the curve traveling approximately 30 to 35 mph, the right rear tire caught the edge of a gutter which was approximately 3 feet from where care entered the curve. When the tire hit the edge of the gutter that was rounded, the tire blew throwing the car to the right and the overhead airbags deployed causing seat belts to grab tight around me, and I managed to stop the car between a light pole and a brick fence. The car was towed to the dealership. The wheel, tire, airbag control module, headliner, seat belts, airbag sensors and the left and right side air bag modules had to be replaced at a cost of $3800. Oem parts were replaced. When the car was being repaired. The dealership had to order another airbag control module because the first one they received was defective.
