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.

Had a tire blow out on the passengers side. This happened on September 18, 2005. Contacted the manufacturer of trailer, and they repaired it. However, the insurance company paid for it. Took the tire to the mechanic at dealership, and he saw no reason why this happened. The tire was not dry rotted and of the tread came off.
