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 was traveling on montrose parkway in rockville, md. I was traveling at about 45mph. I approached a slight bend to the left that had a slight decline. I lost control on debris that was left over from an accident earlier that morning. I struck and went over the curb with the right side of my vehicle. I went head on into a steel light post incased in a concert footer. The vehicle sustained very extensive damage to the front end. The airbags did not deploy during the collision. This is a very major concern to me because this could have turned out way worse, but I was very, very lucky to be able to only sustain bruising. This vehicle was a total loss.

Tire pressure monitoring system - valve stems corroded badly - appear to be made of poor quality aluminum - eventually broke off when attempting to add air pressure. Could have easily broken off when driving just due to vibration and caused a sudden loss of air pressure resulting in loss of control of vehicle. Have replace three units so far at a cost of over $300. Have kept old parts and invoices and pictures of badly corroded units. Please recall before someone gets hurt. Jeep has replaced units with brass units now!!! they should pay for their mistakes. Parts made by schrader electronics.
