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.

The relatively new tier (had only 9,000 miles on it) kind of has burst into two or more pieces and had made me slid from one lane to another, hitting the median and turned 180. The rear of the car is greatly damaged. The car was towed and taken to the sam's club where the tier was replaced. We have filed complaints with bf good rich, and GM.
