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 have my Kia Soul 2010 since October 2009. Approximately in March 2010 I saw one of the front hankook tires had a big bubble. Then for about 3 months later; another tire in this case a rear tire had a bubble too. I spoke with maintenance dealer in puerto rico and they told me it was abuse of my part and need to replace them. In August 2010 the third tire; in front had appear with a bubble too. I am driving this car with these 3 tires with bubbles; I fear for my safety and one day one of them could burst in the highway and cause an accident and lost my life. Its weird a tire have this problem.
