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.

Defective tires - after 2 flat tires it was discovered that all 4 had the same defect - bubbling and separation inside the tire shoulder, after appx 17K miles with proper installation and tire pressure. Was offered the same tires at a reduced cost. Declined and purchased a different brand.
