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.

The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who replaced the valve stem to remedy the failure. Later, the contact discovered that the additional three metal valve stems were also cracked and air was leaking from each tire. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was 80,000.

Left rear TPMS valve stem corroded and failed while driving on highway. Tire quickly deflated. Tire dealer replaced tire, but valve stem was too corroded, so a regular valve stem was used. Two days later, the right front valve stem failed, again while driving on highway. While at tire dealer, I had them replace the other two TPMS sensors that hadn't failed (yet).

Low tire pressure came on. Check tire for air pressure and the valve stem broke and flew off 20 feet. Thank goodness I was not driving as this would of caused a crash indeed especially as I was going to be traveling on the expressway at 75 mph. Something needs to be done about this problem before someone gets maimed or killed.
