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.

Excessive rear tire pressure in tires on rear axle causes loss of traction and the rear end to skid out in wet conditions. 80 psi is fine for heavy loads, but on a empty pick-up it causes a small tire contact service area. I have easily corrected the problem by reducing the rear tire psi to 50 psi which solves the problem and still is more than needed for a 2900 lb load the problem is this turns on the TPMS light making it useless. I have seen more than one O these pick-ups loose controlandrollover as a result of this excessive tire psi on unloaded pick-up trucks that had 80 psi in them.
