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 2002 Buick rendezvous. The contact stated that the aluminum rims on the vehicle caused all four tires to lose pressure. She took the vehicle to a tire center for repair and was informed that the aluminum in the rims were peeling inside. In addition, the aluminum was punching the side of the tube and caused the tires to lose pressure. The repair center stated that they had to sand the aluminum down to stop the peeling and loss of tire pressure. The tires are the original tires that came with the vehicle. The rim manufacturer and other related information was unknown. The VIN, failure and current mileage were unavailable. Updated 2/23/09 updated 02/25/09.

I have had numerous flat tires on the 2002 Buick Regal. I have been informed by Goodyear the flat tires were due to the pealing of the chrome rims on the vehicle. The warning light illuminated when the vehicle tires were low and became flat. There weren't any particular road or weather conditions when tires went flat. The failure mileage was about 60,000 miles.

- the contact stated had numerous flat tires on the 2002 Buick Regal. The contact was informed by the dealership the flat tires were due to the pealing of the chrome rims on the vehicle. The dealership resealed the rims on numerous occasions. However, they have never been replaced. The contact stated that the warning light illuminated when the vehicle tires were low and became flat. There weren't any particular road or weather conditions when tires went flat. The current and failure mileage were both 32100. Consumer states dealer informed her rims need relining that's why the tires keep going flat, dealer will not pay to have the rims replaced and consumer feels it the dealers responsibility./17tr
