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.

1998 Honda Civic Owner Comments

Driving on I-84 during a rainy morning rush hour, at 70mph, my Honda Civic's front left tire experienced an immediate loss of air. I pulled over to the next exit and changed the tire. Took the tire to the local tire shop for repair, and they discovered that the valve stem had failed. At that speed, the tires were ruined, so I had to buy a new tire.
