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.

Tire had a bubble on the sidewall after driving only 1500 miles. Bridgestone say's it's due to roadhazard. I don't recall hitting anything, but I can't rule it out. Bridgestone has never actually inspected the tire. Lexus replaced the tire at a cost of $285. The service manager at Lexus, mike jackson, said there is a risk you take from driving on "low profile" tires. I told him if I knew I would have to take a risk driving a $31,000 car I never would have purchased it. He recommended I purchase the smaller 16" wheels and tires, at an additional cost.
