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 service writer first said, "it's out of alignment." I know better (I've been in the automotive repair business for 21 years). Then he said, "the tire was ran low." I said it wasn't. then he said, "you didn't rotate the tires often enough." Then he said (in confidence), "GM uses junk tires." But they won't warranty the tires. And I have a bumper to bumper warranty. I also know that all Chevy astrovans have this very same problem.( dot number: ?? tire size: P195/65R15 )
