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.

After purchasing one lug nut and bolt to be replaced by tire kingdom, 15 other lug nuts and bolts broke off. I had to purchase additional lug nuts and bolts to be replaced. When I contacted dealer, (midway Isuzu in miami) they informed me that this is a known defect of this vehicle but my basic warranty (3 years) is over and it is no longer covered. I purchased this vehicle used, with almost two years of use. I never received notification from Isuzu that this is a common and well known defect of this model. I'm concerned that my safety may have been compromised and other owners of this model are also at risk.

While vehicle was being serviced for tire rotation and balancing. The lug bolt that holds the lug nut snapped off. The manager at tire kingdom has informed me that they have this kind of problem with Isuzu's. he asked me to purchase the replacement part from the dealer and he will install it for free. I'm writing to you to report this just in case there is defect involved with these lug bolts. I am concerned since this is a key part of the tire and wheel assembly. Please let me know if you need additional information or if there is a known defect.
