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.

My wife and I bought a new 2009 Chevrolet HHR. The vehicle specifications sticker on the driver's door calls for 30 psi tire inflation. However, the tires themselves show a maximum inflation of 44 psi. Since many people inflate tires according to what is on the sidewall instead of the door sticker, this could easily lead to overinflation of the tires and the associated hazards. In our case, every time we have had the oil changed, the service personnel have overinflated the tires, usually to around 40 psi, and I have had to decrease the pressure.
