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 Nov 22nd my son was driving in detroit at 11pm when the back passenger tire blew. Went to the trunk to get the spare and that's when we discovered it didn't come with a spare. Next day got it towed and paid 234$ for a new tire. On Dec 21st, husband driving home late hit a small pothole and blew the front passenger tire. Got it towed and again 234$ for a new tire. On May 25th was driving my stepson home and blew the same front passenger tire. It took over 3 1/2 hours for the tow truck and since it was a holiday weekend I was without a car for two days. And this time it only cost me 211$ cuz I had a coupon. 3 tires in 6 months is not right! there's 2 other drivers at my house and they haven't had problems with driving on the roads!
