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.

The contact owns a 2009 Lexus IS250. While driving approximately 15 mph, the contact drove over a pot hole and the tire pressure warning light illuminated. After adding air to the tire, the contact noticed that air continued to escape from the tire. The tire was replaced with the spare, and the contact inspected the wheel casing and noticed two screws that were exposed in the wheel housing. The contact stated that the screws were what punctured the tire. The contact stated that the design of the vehicle was dangerous to drive in bad winter weather. The manufacturer was contacted and stated they would cover the cost to tow the vehicle to the dealer for inspection. The approximate failure mileage was 11,300.
