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 tires that failed the first time had been replaced with the same Firestone steeltex at tires. These new tires are a year old and already are falling apart and all cracked. I want Firestone to recall these tires before I get into another accident. (tiresize: 16)( dot number: Tire size: 16 )
