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.

6/9/2015 my car was serviced at the Chevy dealer's repair shop to prepare for a long distance trip. They reported I needed 4 new tires. I only agreed to replace 2 rear tires. I received my car 6/10/2015. 6/15/2015 only 4 days later one of the new tires blew out into 3 pcs (just missing serious or fatal injury). Once aaa installed the spare tire I called the manager of the Chevy repair shop in NJ to report the blow out & to request they pay for pending repairs. He stated he did not have a way to pay for the repairs. He advised me to pay for the tire repairs a reimbursement. 6/15/2015 I was advised that the tire sensor was destroyed in the blow out. I only replaced the tire to get home (forced to purchase a tire @ $193.77). When my car returned home. I contacted general motor (GM). A GM rep said that GM would speak to the Chevy garage on my behalf. GM called and requested I take my car to a Goodyear repair shop for inspection, poss repairs and poss refund. Furious at shop & GM for placed defective tires on my car and for a lacked of accountability and a lack of over site for such a dangerous act. Online I discovered that the tires placed on my car on June 10, 2015 were recalled by Goodyear between December 2014 and February 2015. My tires:type: Goodyear hl edition fortegra; size: Mts P255/65R18; dot# 4bxm ardr 4614 & dot# 4bxm ardr 0515. I found an online letter from Goodyear to all dealers mandating them to return all recalls. I shelled out $777.31 to have my car ready for travel. During the blow out I put out $193.77 to get my car safely back home. I paid out $1,051.21 to replace 4 new tires. I then had to cough up $380.60 to get brakes and rotors which stopped wheel vibration. The grand cost was more than $2,402.89 which ddi not cover tire removal and donut installation. Still my car has not been totally repaired or inspected from the blow out.

The tire pressure monitoring system warning light wont go out. This light came on and flashed and then went off. We had the dealer check it, but they said that this was normal. It came on again a month later, but went off. It was checked by dealer again. A few days later it came back on and stayed on. The dealer keeps saying its a quirk in the system for the car, but this sounds like bs. It may be a failed sensor but it needs to be replace or corrected. This is a major safety issue because lack of adequate pressure in all four tires can cause an accident, especially when the system no longer tells you which tire is the issue.
