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.

Have had a vibration and pulling in steering wheel since purchace of 2004 Honda Civic vp. Took into dealer at 2000 miles and they could not find vibration. At 3100 miles took to different dealer they found vibration and pulling. Did front end alignment and balance tires. Stated if continues, then possible tire defect. At 4000 miles again took to original dealership, they did front end alignment again, but stated it is a problem with a tire and since they are not a dunlop retailer could not replace. Went to sears and they state since tire was not sold by them and are original tires on car at time of sale, they could only do a comparable tread tire. The tire is a dunlop sp20fe.
