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 2003 Buick Regal. The contact stated the aluminum casting around three of the four rims was peeling off. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer and was informed this had become a known failure and it was hard to re-seal the wheels. The vehicle was not repaired.

Oe chrome plated aluminum wheels on my 2003 Buick Regal. Separation occurs between the chrome and the aluminum substrate resulting in an air leak, believed to be caused by salt corrosion. Loss of air could result in a deflated tire and subsequent loss of control. Discovered upon new tire purchase.
