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.

Pickup came with 17 inch tires. Ordered 3 new 17 inch tires and was planning on using the spare as the 4th tire. The spare was a 16 inch tire instead on a 17 inch. Dealership claims no damage wil come to vehicle or lost of driving control when using the 16 inch tire. GM web site clearly states "mixing tires could cause you to lose control while driving." Dealership showed me bulleting from GM stating the size difference will not cause concern. Who do I believe?
