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 contact owns a 2012 Honda Civic. The contact stated that the spare tire was causing a strong smell of rubber to be emitted throughout the vehicle. The contact mentioned that the smell increased during hotter weather. As a result, the contact was experiencing shortness of breath and nausea. The manufacturer was contacted and did not provide a remedy. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician decided to wash the tire and spare tire housing with soap and water. The remedy failed to repair the problem. The failure mileage was 19,000 and the 35,357.
