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.

I have had ongoing problems with low tire pressure. Last week the right front tire inexplicably went flat. The flat was replaced with a brand new Continental tire. A day after that replacement, I checked the pressure. The valve on the tire was defective.. I would not have noticed it until I removed the cap to check the pressure and heard air escaping. The other tire on the left front also has a problem maintaining air pressure. I told the dealer to check the tire and the dealer says there is nothing wrong. This can't be since the tire lost pressure only after placing air in it a day or so prior. This car is only 5 months old. Yet. I have had to place air in the front tires before I go anywhere. It is now at a point where I have to check the tire pressure before using the car. I drove a Mercedes for 13 years and never had one problem with the tires. Before that a Toyota for 5 years and again never had a problem with a tire spontaneously losing pressure. This is the 2nd X type I have had. I had a similar problem with the right rear tire on that vehicle. At that time I was told it was a nail hole. Yet, N after that alleged hole was repaired I had ongoing problems with low tire pressure. I wrote it off as a service problem. Had I realized that this tire problem was more than an isolated incident on one vehicle li would have never had leased this vehicle again. When I reviewed this website as to complaints I was shocked to see almost 15 complaints since 2002 of tires deflating and blowouts. This problem must be investigated before there is a serious fatality.
