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.

Equinox 4-cyl

Driving back from el paso I felt a small vibration 1/4 of the way on a trip back from el paso to phx. The vibration became stronger the farther I went. I checked and the left rear tire was separated. This was the second tire that has separated in a two week period. The previous was replaced by the dealership.
