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.

Malibu Classic

We were driving on interstate 84 westbound at cascade locks where there is construction. We had a sidewatt blowout on the left front tire. The tire was purchased new from les scwab tires in portland Oregon. We are taking the car there tomorrow March 8, 2010 for the tire to be replaced. The information off of the invoice is a follows. 205/65R-15 94T tourevo all seasons blackwall. We had the tires replaced on June 9, 2008 just prior to a vacation. We did not see anything hit the car or the tire, and there did not appear to be any cuts on the tire prior to the trip. The tread that is left on the tire is about 3/16th of an inch or more. The tread looks fairly good.
