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 contact owns a 2003 Chrysler PT CRUISER. The contact stated that the front passenger side rim was rotting from the inside out and causing excessive wear on the tire. As a result, he has placed air in the tire at least once a day for the past four months. The dealer and manufacturer were notified. The current mileage was 84,655 and failure mileage was 80,000. The consumer stated now has a 2nd tire that he has to maintain air in every other day. The consumer stated the problem is the center hub cover because it snaps in place and leaves space for sail and other materials to enter. Updated 10/23/07

: the contact stated a deflated tire was noticed on the vehicle. After inflating the tire, it was driven to the dealer who determined oxidation on the rims caused slow leaks in all four tires and suggested replacing the rims.

The spare tire did not fit on the rim of the front tires. The car has been taken to the dealership and they would not replace the tire. The manufacturer has been contacted also and they were not any help either. The owner has tried to put the spare tire on the front when she had a flat, but that did not work. The spare also doesn't fit the front. This has been a problem since 2004, when the owner noticed it. The owner went and bought brand new tires, but did not buy a 5th tire to make a new spare. It is the rim that is the problem, not the tire itself.
