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.

Spare tire fell off vehicle while vehicle was in motion. No redundancy in the mechanism that holds the spare tire in place. Metal clip that fits in the center bore of the wheel is the only thing holding the spare tire in place. In the case of my vehicle the clip had rusted and failed allowing the spare tire to fall off the vehicle. If this had occurred on a busy road at speed it could have been very dangerous.
