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.

On Saturday, June 21, 2003, I was driving home on a country road at @ 40 miles per hour when my right front tire exploded and separated from the tire rim. I was very lucky that I was not driving at a higher rate of speed, as I was not injured and my Jeep Grand Cherokee remained upright.
