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.

My rt. Front tire blew while I was traveling. Even though I was going slow, there was enough force to take out a peice of my wheel cover & dent the front door. I had to replace it at T little tire store in the town it happened in. I replaced all the tires at the same time because the shop worker showed me a place on the left front tire that looked like it was separating too. At the time, I thought that a big-brand name like Firestone shouldn't do that, so I replace it with another brand. I realized that if it had happened on the open highway at a high speed, I could have lost control of the car & I felt lucky. But it was costly & I still have the dent & peice if fender in my floorboard. I do not have the tires so I do not know any particulars about them, but the dealer should. I probably can get the tow service to attest to the fact that it did blow, he put on one of those little temporary tires & suggested a few shops I could try to get a tire at.
