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.

While driving at highway speeds right rear tire blew out. Vehicle spun around three times and then stopped. Dealer inspected the tire and found metal inside the tire. Two days later, the left rear and the right front tires blew out, and caused the vehicle to run off the road. After inspecting the tires, dealer destroyed tires, and did not write down the dot numbers on the tires.
