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.

The vehicle spare tire could not be release from the storage area under the rear bumper of the consumer's van. While driving, the rear left tire shredded to pieces. When the consumer attempted to changed the tire and replace it with the spare, she discovered the spare tire would not move from its location. The consumer was told that after a few years the spare rusted up inside the storage area. The service department lubed and used a grease gun and the spare came out just like it was supposed to and went back in as well.

Original dot tire # was on tires the dealer replaced and we paid for. On both occasionsi was going slow when I heard noise of a tire going flat. I have bag the dealer gave to my husband that contains a portion of tire fragments and debris like it just peeled off. This car was purchased new and these were the original tires that came with the car. Luckily I was going slow and not on the interstate. There was a puncture on both tires but this could also be from the separation of the tread or driving on it til I could get off the road into a safe place. I would be glad to take a picture of the debris from the 2nd flat/blow-out. I had no trouble like this with my 1st Chevy Venture and believe I should have had many more miles on them--now I wonder if the other 2 are going to go also.
