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.

2001 Chevrolet Prizm Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 222008

Prizm 4-cyl

  • miles


Right front tire blew out unexpectedly while driving. Had not yet anything. Tire was split radially from bead to bead. The noise was so loud that I originally thought it was the suspension failing. Tire was a sigma tempest by cooper size: P185/65R14. Your database does not include this product / size combination. I put a placeholder in that was closest.
