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 hit a pothole on my way to work at 4:55pm on Monday Feb.24,2014. The pothole was at the intersection of cumberland ave and higgins ave.I was going North on cumberland towards talcott ave, park ridge. As I approached higgins ave, red light turned on. I was behind one car when the green light turned on. The car in front of me was able to avoid the pothole, but since I was right behind, I did not. The moment I hit this pothole with my front, left tire my dashboard displayed a message that I have low pressure in the tire. Automatically my wheel started pulling me to the side. I drove up cumberland ave for approximately 1 block and pulled to the nearest side street that was on my right: Glenlake ave. I got out of the car to find a flat tire. By the time I got help, it was 5:45pm. I called park ridge police department asking what I should do and I was directed to file a claim towards my insurance. I wanted to make a picture of the pot hole but considering higgins ave and cumberland ave is a large, busy intersection, I was not able to stop and take a picture. Today, Feb.26,2014, I was going the same way to work and I found the pothole to be patched up. I want to know who will pay for my damaged tire? the pothole must have been very deep since upon impact, I automatically got a flat. I also wanted to add that I was starting off from a full stop. I did not drive more than 15 mph. All in all, this situation is causing me a lot of inconvenience and I want to know if the city of Chicago will reimburse me for the costs that I now have.
