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.

Metal fatigue in lug nuts as my wife and I were getting read to pull on to the dallas North tollway (speed limit 70 mph) on 11/23/16, another motorist desperately flagged us down and yelled your tire is falling off. The tires were rotated the Friday before (11/18/16) at stanley point Ford. Upon stopping, three of the four lug nuts were loose. I had the car towed to stanley point Ford and the service manager reported back to me that those three lug nuts were stretched and worn. He also found two others on the car in the same shape. They replaced all 16 lug nuts on the car. (see attached)

Was driving on highway and back left tire exploded, the complete side wall all the way around blew out. I had problems with losing air and I got no where with the dealership, then when this happened I even printed out complaints others had with the same tires and they said they could not do anything because it was considered wear and tear. I bought my vehicle in Aug of 2012 and its not even a year old. I am also hearing more complaints from others. I have a commercial lic., and this could have been deadly for an unskilled driver. I fear for mine and others safety. I had my tires replaced at wal-mart.
