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.

I purchased new tires for my vehicle in 2006, I drive only about 8000 miles a year. I have had two flat tires this year, one on 5/21/08 and the other on 8/31/08 and both were cause by faulty valve stems. With the incident on 8/31/08, my tires were all inflated properly when left I the house to run errands. I left one parking lot, turned on the main street and within seconds I knew something was wrong and I had a flat. It happened all of a sudden. The flat was fixed (roadside assistance) and I then went back to sears where I had purchased the tires. I had the roadside hazard agreement. The technician at the auto center said there had been a problem with valve stems. I saw something on tv about a horrible crash that happened when the very same thing happened to some man. I was lucky, I had only turned onto the main street and was not going very fast.
