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.

Do you care for your family safety? I do. Cheap worthless Malibus are equipped (In Mexico and I know everywhere else) with something called Affinity Firestones. Well, these tires (I have read complaints somewhere else) have 3 common problems: Frequent Punctures (fixable) and more than soft sidewalls, which lead to sort of a bubble that forms in the sidewall when caught in a mild pothole. The 3rd problem is that rubber starts to "crack" prematurely (less than 30K miles!). Advice: Sell the car or else change the tires to a new set of Michelin's!!! (I sold the car after suffering for 3.5 years).
