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.

  • 51,000 miles
I have a 2009 Chevrolet Express 3500 with 51,000 miles on it. In a two week period at the end of Jan '10 I had 3 tire valve stem failures. When I attempted to remove the valve cap to check air pressure the top of the stem blew right off. I've replaced three and the one remaining factory valve stem is on the drivers side front tire. I'm in fear of my life driving with this equipment. What happens if it fails while I'm driving 60 mph down the highway ??
