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.

2009 Cadillac, Cts sedan. Consumer states defective tire compressor the consumer discovered the vehicle did not come with a spare tire. The dealer informed the consumer Cadillac no longer installed spare tires, but it came with a compressor that provided foam to inflate the tire in the event of a flat tire. In February 2010, the consumers wife had a flat tire. A passerby stopped and tried to inflate the tire using the compressor and foam, the foam went in the tire and came out of the hole. The end result, was no inflation of the tire. The consumers wife had to aaa so the vehicle could be towed. Also the trunk had a leak.

I purchased a 2009 Cadillac cts4, I just recently had a tire blow out due to road hazard which made the tire not repairable. When I pulled over to put the spare on I discovered there was no spare no jack no lug wrench.,.but just an electric tire pump and a seal kit in the wheel well. Luckily I was only a few blocks from home but my point is I could have been stranded in the middle of nowhere with nothing to temporarily fix/replace the bad tire. After contacting the dealer on the following Monday they ordered a tire and replaced it.I questioned why no spare and they could not answer, just said "that's GM for you" they said they could order a spare tire kit for $340 which I did and just rec'd today. With that being said, my question is how can they sell a car without a spare, jack, lug wrench"?" every new car I have purchased over the last 30 plus years has always had a spare!!.isn't it required under dot regs. Thank you
